Added and Updated Record Collections at - Week of 5 to 11 April 2020

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

As of 11 April 2020, there were 2,763 historical record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 6 from last week):

The added (in BOLD) or updated collections this week are:

Iowa State Census, 19252,487,917Apr 8, 2020
Minnesota Deaths, 1887-2001522,762Apr 8, 2020
England Death Record,1998-20153,293,133Apr 6, 2020

Unfortunately, FamilySearch changed their website a bit and Marshall has been unable to do his "magic" this week to determine what is new, updated or 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 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.
