In my research for the Illuminated Edda I am following breadcrumbs which lead to as many corroborating sources as possible. Most of the major ones I already own in print because I dislike relying on the internet editions which are often full of errors. In some cases I have no choice but to find sources online since they aren't easily available in print. In my searches I have run across quite a few more recent bodies of work, 15th to 19th century, but many can be disregarded as fantasy novels from the Victorian age. But when I do find something of particular esoteric rarity and interest I'll post them here. This is today's find:

Hrafnagaldr Óðins
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hrafnagal ... 3%C3%B0ins
https://notendur.hi.is/~eybjorn/ugm/hrg/hrg.html

I found this while tracking down Iduna's lineage. The relevant parts are:
Dvelur í dölum Dwells in dales
2 dís forvitin, the curious dís,
3 Yggdrasils frá from Yggdrasill's
4 aski hnigin; ash descended;
5 álfa ættar of elven kin,
6 Iðunni hétu, Iðunn was her name,
7 Ívalds eldri youngest of Ívald's
8 yngsta barna. elder children.

Sounds like the offspring of Ivaldi (dvergar) and an unspecified alfar. The family tree tapestry is going to be something else! ;)

Some links are broken, but they refer you to sites where you can re-search and get the updated links.
