Added and Updated Record Collections - Week of 27 March to 2 April 2021

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

As of 2 April 2021, there are 2,974 historical record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 2 from last week):

New and updated collections this week from FamilySearch are:

Canada Marriages, 1661-1949228,597Apr 1, 2021
Germany Marriages, 1558-19293,364,777Mar 30, 2021

My friend and SDGS colleague, Marshall, provides this list to me from a program he wrote that compares the current FamlySearch record collections list to the previous week's list.

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.

Preservation New Jersey did almost all of the work for me in their post of my ancestor's home in Fairfield, New Jersey. See:

Friends of the Van Ness house are working on trying to save it.
