Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 28 May to 3 June 2017

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

As of 3 June 2017, there were 2,223 record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 0  from last week):

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

--- Collections Updated ---

*  Louisiana, Parish Marriages, 1837-1957  (; 1,093,880 indexed records with 54,003 record images (was 1,093,138 records with 54,003 images), Updated 1 Jun 2017

*  Missouri, Reports of Separation Notices, 1941-1946      (; Index only (367,825 records), no images (was 348,314 records with 0 images), Updated 1 Jun 2017

*  Argentina, Entre Ríos, Catholic Church Records, 1764-1983       (; 601,470 indexed records with 235,772 record images (was 601,470 records with 141,066 images), Updated 30 May 2017

--- Collections with images removed ---

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