I don't really get the meaning of this sentence, does it mean

to remind or to confirm something , to make sure of something (?)

the whole sentence is:

そう言えば 確認というか念を押しとくが

Two friends are talking and suddently one say this changing the topic of the conversation.

Can you provide more context? What is the topic of the conversation? Maybe add the lines before/after this one. –  Igor Skochinsky Jan 12 '14 at 2:34
Right. I added some more informations, unfortunately the sentences before are not related with this. –  bunny Jan 12 '14 at 2:46
Ok, what about after? And is that そう言うば or そう言えば? –  Igor Skochinsky Jan 12 '14 at 3:00
Sorry そう言えば and after he talks about his death.. –  bunny Jan 12 '14 at 3:03
A translation would be "By the way, I would like to confirm, more like I want to remind you, about [...]". The [...] part is the continuation of the sentence that you didn't put up. –  nhahtdh Jan 12 '14 at 18:23
