Added and Updated Record Collections at - Week of 23 to 29 June 2019

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

As of 29 June 2019, there were 2,519 historical record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 3 from last week):

The added or updated collections are:

Nova Scotia Births, 1864-1877217,953Jun 29, 2019
England and Wales Census, 191136,354,828Jun 28, 2019
BillionGraves Index28,536,736Jun 27, 2019


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 and use keywords (e.g. "church england") to find collections with those keywords.

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.

Does your friend no longer provide you with the same level of detail as he previously did?

Hi Chad,

He was busy on Friday night and sent it to me on Saturday after I wrote the post and went off to the Padres game. Life happens!

Cheers -- Randy

Good to hear that all is well with him. I was worried that he might be under the weather.
