New or Updated Collections at Family Search - October 5 to 11, 2014

It is always a struggle to keep up with the new and updated record collections at FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list).  As of 5 October, there were 1,838 record collections on FamilySearch (up 1 from last week, which one was it?).

Here are the new and updated collections for the week of 5 to 11 October 2014:

Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell which collections are brand new and which ones are updated.  The asterisk is for "new or updated."  I am particularly interested in new collections, for the obvious reasons.

Each one of the collections listed above has a Research Wiki page (use the "Learn more" link).  It would be very useful if the Wiki page for each collection listed the dates for when the collection was added as a new collection and the major updates also.
