Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 11 to 17 December 2016

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

As of 18 December 2016, there were 2,178 record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of  2  from last week):

The added or updated collections are:

*  Pennsylvania, County Marriages, 1885-1950; 2,255,061 records with record images, Updated 16 Dec 2016

*  England, Cambridgeshire Bishop's Transcripts, 1599-1860; 36,260 records with record images, ADDED 15 Dec 2016

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 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.
