In order to select a specific record collection on FamilySearch, 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.

Why are records being removed?

Randy Seaver said...

Hi Shasta,

That's a good question. My guess is that they find duplicates in the index or the images.

If you look at the record collection with records removed, there are usually only a few indexed records being removed.

Also, some historical record collections may be combined into another historical record collection.

In some cases, the record repository that provided the images may require removal of the images because of contractual agreements.
