Roy believes there is also a connection to Arni Sveinsson, yet has not been determined.

Henry 'Hank' Christopherson mentioned he went to school with Anna Sveinsson, here is a reply from Ed who helped me find Ytranes.

Hello Roy,
The Anna Sveinsson you referred to would be Diana's first cousin — She was the daughter of Jon (Diana's Uncle) and Veiga Sveinsson. She was the Aunt of Laara Lindo. Jon was the son of pioneer Arni Sveinsson.
As you can see, Anna passed away very recently also. Hope this explanation helps!
