New or Updated Record Collections at FamilySearch.org - June 6 to 12, 2015

I'm trying to keep up with the new and updated record collections at FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list).  

As of 13 June 2015, there were 2,010 record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 6 from last week):





The new or updated collections are:

*  United States Census, 1800; 540,634 indexed records without record images, added or updated 11 Jun 2015

*  Philippines, Manila, Civil Registration, 1899-1984; Browse images only, no indexed records, added or updated 11 Jun 2015

*  Iowa, State Census, 1925; 5,573,816 indexed records with record images, added or updated 11 Jun 2015

*   Italy, Ragusa, Civil Registration (State Archive), 1900-1940; Browse Images only, no indexed records, added or updated 09 Jun 2015


*  United States, Freedmen's Branch Records, 1872-1878; Browse Images only, no indexed records, added or updated 09 Jun 2015

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

In order to select a specific collection, go to 
https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list and use the "Filter by collection name" feature in the upper left-hand corner.

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 dates for major updates also.

What's with all the "no record images" on so many of their databases. Even the 1800 U.S. census.
