|The idea of digitizing genealogical material for everyone to use is not a new one. The first
ideas started coming together in early 2004...
The association is founded at a meeting held at Lohja. The people present were Timo Nyholm,
Tapio Kallio, Markku Kukkola. Our number of members has
been growing ever since.
The association gets its server, thanks to sponsors and other active participants. The computer
is a 2600 MHz Pentium with 1 GB RAM and two 120 GB S-ATA drives. The server gets placed in Juha's
closet for the time being. The connection speed is nominally 2 Mbit/s, but in reality slower, since
it's shared with a lot of other users. The server is named digiarkisto.org, aka
digiarkisto.org. The middle part comes from Kotiverkkoyhdistys (Domestic Network Association),
whose network the server uses.
The association gets its own bank account LUSP 400626-51144.
The e-mail mailing list is set up. firstname.lastname@example.org.
The association has a booth at the Kuulutko sukuuni
(Are you a member of my family?)-event in Vantaa.
The first pictures are uploaded to he server.
The website gets a face lift. The girls (Päivi and Anne) are hard working and make sure that the
boys do their job as well. Thank you for that.
The first course on digitizing is held at Sello, the Leppävaara library in Espoo.
The registration of the association is approved by the
Register of Associations.
The association has a booth at the Kuulutko
