============================================

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.

NOTE:  Many (20!!) of the Mexican state Civil Registration record collections gained an Index but lost the images.  Is there a reason for this?  Will the images return?

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.

I noticed you did not mention the missing 1930 Census records. They still seem to be at 42M. Do you happen to have an update on this? Thank you.
