STILL waiting for answers to my emails from 18th March to Rigsarkiv - the Danish National Archives - and Arkivalieronline via LAV mailbox. The arkivists show pretty bad manners for an official body - TNA Kew is better organised - they acknowledge all emails received and send an answer from the appropriate department within about 14 days.

Møde om Arkivalieronline

A meeting was held in Copenhagen on the 18th March 2005 
at the Rigsarkiv - the Danish National Archives - 
about their web site of census and church book images.

Participating were:-
the chairman of Sammenslutningen af Slægtshistoriske Foreninger  
Elsebeth Ib,
representing DIS-Danmark   Jens V. Olsen,
representing AOHackers   Per Agerbæk
for Statens Arkiver Erling Haagh, En medarbejder ved AO
Chr. R. Jansen,
Brian Jessen, webmaster 
Johan Peter Noack and Poul Erik Olsen.

At the meeting the many questions which users of Arkivalieronline,
had raised were discussed. In spite of differences it was agreed 
to seek solutions cooperatively.

It was agreed:-

1. to form a working group to investigate solutions 
within the existing budget to improve the performance 
of the network and the server.

2. to recommend that major downloads using AO-Værktøj 
should preferably be between midnight and 9.00am danish time.

3. to recommend that the big downloads, of kirkebøger
 or folketællingsmateriale, be restricted to 
users current needs.

4. to establish a brugerråd (users group), 
that can better future cooperation.

5. to meet again when the working group has a report on 1. above, 
and has a proposal of rules for a users' group 
vedtægter for et brugerråd.
