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.

Thanks for doing this every week, it lets me (and reminds me) what collections are new or updated and reminds me to run new/repeat searches for ancestors that I believed I had checked everything available on Family Search. I have had success with this method.

thanks for this update

I have found some of my family members in the 1828 Census for NSW in Australia collections - however I did not find all family members

I also appreciated the Marriages in Illinois
