Hello onto All,
a question has at you.
I saw that in the archive things are over the Tirpitz.
There are folders with a lock and without, what has to mean that?
How can one order these things and what costs that?
My problem is that I no Norwegian can and is my English not very good.
Maybe you can give me a few infos.

Here the link is

Thanks onto All.

Hi, all documents are available for free, however those with locks is unavailable to all because they are, for some odd reason, tied up with clausules.

If the National Archives (UK) can be judged as a yardstick then the clauses restricting access could be:

1, The file concerning an individual remains closed due to the individual still being alive; not proven dead (due to records not being available); and if in the case of being unable prove the passing of the individual, that 100 years has to pass. With some files there could be an even longer time period.

2, There is information in the files that is deemed sensitive - perhaps still relevant in some way to national security.

3, The information is just too sensitive for a wide range of political reasons.

The above is merely a snapshot and cannot be considered definitive, but it gives a general idea as to why files are closed.

There is the ability to challenge the closures - as with the TNA - and it is always worth doing this. I have had some success with various challenges. In the event of someone who is deceased it is possible, as with the TNA, to provide the death certificate as acceptable proof. The file is then considered for release, although there can be further restrictions applying.

The above can seem daunting, but I have found the National Archives (UK) to be very helpful and accomodating where they can. I am sure this attitude would equally apply to the Riksarkivet in Oslo.

hope it helps a little.

Kind regards

Bob
