Added or Updated Record Collections at FamilySearch.org - Week of 14 to 20 May 2017

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

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

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!

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.

Randy, Thanks for you post. I looked at "New Hampshire Civil War Service and Pension Records." https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2127318
Interesting document in this collection called "Disbursements in Aid of Families of Volunteers." It is a register of volunteers, their units, dates of Muster In, names of family members, dates aid was rendered, funds due from state, mustered out date. I had not seen one of these before. Found several people from my tree.
Here is a link to an example
