Those are the featured collections pinned at the top of the list.

Is there a typo in your analysis?

"now 6,532 collections on MyHeritage (up from 6,539 on 4 June 2018"

Don't you mean down rather than up? From your numbers, it sounds like a net decrease of seven collections.

Yes, Chad, a typo. sorry about that. Last month it was 6530 not 6539. Thanks for the note.
