Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 11 to 17 February 2018

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

As of 17 February 2018, there were 2,291 record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 1 from last week):

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

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.
