One record collection was deleted from the list:


Consequently, two collections were added, and one was deleted, resulting in the number of collections increasing by one from last week.

My friend, Marshall, has come up with a way to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED.  Thanks to Marshall for helping me out here! 

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 the updates! Found 13 Shackfords & family members in the Maine, World War I Draft Registration Index, 1917-1919, added sources to my RootsMagic files and connected them in FamilySearch. Also your fabulous old tip on downloading the list from FamilySearch into Excel and then using the speadsheet is still being used!
