Dowdy - are you talking about the "Parish" under "What's Happening at Ancestry" on the home page, and when you click on Parish to tells you that this no longer exists?

Another way in, is via "View all new Records" on Home page, then when the new page appears, chose "Parish Records" from the list on the right-hand side of the page.  This will take you to what used to appear via "Parish" on the Home page.  Not sure if I can attach the procedure, but I'll try  ;)

I think your best bet is either to put "Derbyshire records Ancestry" in your browser search field or try this:

Welcome to our Derbyshire family history research page.

I've not yet found these Derbyshire pages by going into Ancestry first.

It doesn't help when these websites change their methods.  I spoke to Ancestry some time ago regarding the "unavailable" page, but they still haven't fixed it.  Just by chance I found the alternative way in, and I suppose it does only involve two extra clicks.  :-\ :-X

Whilst I do have a full subscription to Ancestry I don't rely on it and would never ever upload any material of my own onto it. I also have a full subscription to FindMyPast which is just as well as I am currently delving back to and beyond 1700 in the Leicestershire parish records (Great Easton). And, although Ancestry has some Rutland records rolled into its Northamptonshire collections, FindMyPast is by far more exhaustive.

The Rutland records on Ancestery are the Bishops Transcripts held at Northampton Record Office, hence, as is normal with Bishops Transcripts, they are not so exhaustive as those on Findmypast from the Parish Registers.

There are also a few issues with the naming of parishes within the Bishops Transcripts.  Pickworth and Great Casterton have been amalgamated into one "parish" in the BTs but were actually two separate parishes with separate parish registers.  I don't think this is an Ancestry problem as they are showing the same on Familysearch.  It may be that the copies were submitted together as one originally hence the error.
