New or Updated Record Collections at - January 17 to 23, 2016

I'm trying to keep up with the new and updated record collections at FamilySearch (  

As of 23 January 2016, there were 2,056 record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 0 from last week):

The new or updated collections are:

*  Honduras, Civil Registration, 1841-1968; 178,391 indexed records with record images, updated 21 Jan 2016

*  Florida and South Carolina, Airplane Arrival Manifests, 1944-1945; Browse Images only, no indexed records, updated 19 Jan 2016

*  Kansas County Marriages, 1855-1911; Browse Images only, no indexed records, updated 19 Jan 2016

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.  FamilySearch does provide a listing of which collections are new or updated several days after my post.
In order to select a specific collection, go to 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.
