New Historical Record Collections at FamilySearch - October 2011

I last listed the new or updated collections on the FamilySearch Historical Collections website on 1 October, when there were 800 collections on the list. During October, these Historical Record Collections have been added to make a total of 812 collections as of 1 November:
In the list above, I tried to identify many of the collections as newly added by comparing them to last months listing. When FamilySearch sends their email notifications to interested parties, they are identifying whether they are new or previously existing collections - they don't say which collections are added to the list for the first time..

There are 20 items on the list above, but only 12 newly added databases (according to FamilySearch) since 1 October, so I have missed eight. Oh well! I will update the list as I receive more information about the new databases.

All FamilySearch Historical Record Collections can be accessed at https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/list. You can see the date that collections were recently added or updated by clicking on the "Last Updated" link.  However, there is no indicator whether the specific collections are newly added.
