Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 21 to 27 May 2017

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

As of 27 May 2017, there were 2,223 record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 1  from last week):

The added or updated collections are (as Marshall provided them):--- Collections Added   ---

*  Italy, La Spezia, Catholic Church Records, 1838-1857    (; Index only, no images, ADDED 22 May 2017

--- Collections Updated ---

*  Mexico, Tabasco, Catholic Church Records, 1803-1970     (; 30,805 indexed records with 121,509 record images (was 30,805 records with 121,509 images), Updated 23 May 2017

*  Namibia, Dutch Reformed Church Records, 1956-1984       (; 29,076 indexed records with 17,342 record images (was 3,684 records with 17,342 images), Updated 23 May 2017

In order to select a specific record collection, go to 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.
