Eckington and staveley parish record sites.

Does anyone know if it is possible to access the Ridgeway, Eckington and Staveley parish records sites since Rootsweb/Ancestry have withdrawn them? I know that in theory they are accessible via Ancestry but I am finding it more and more difficult to search and get sensible results.There is just too much extraneous information.

Hi Susan,

I can't answer your question but Rootsweb has had problems over the past year and is only now managing to get some of their mailing lists back up and running. i.e. YORKSGEN.

Could the Staveley/Eckington still be in the backlog to go on line?

Hi Elaine

The message site is back on line but still no sign of the parish records.

Susan, can you please give an example of someone you are searching for who is giving you a problem on Ancestry?

Hi Susan.

I have the Ridgeway records on disc. If that is any help to you.

Dave the records are not part of the Ancestry collection. These records were transcribed by myself and David Boaler and are hosted by Ancestry.

I've also found the same problem with the Cutlers' records (linked from Indexers), & have emailed Ancestry regarding these & the Ridgeway site -but no definitive answer yet.
