Added and Updated FamilySearch Record Collections - Week of 15 to 21 June 2024

     I am keeping track of the new and updated historical record collections at FamilySearch ( every week.

As of 21 June 2024, there are 3,364 historical record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 3 from last week):

The new and updated collections this week from FamilySearch are:

--- Collections Added   ---

*  Canada Census, 1931     (; 10,424,342 indexed records with 2,466,494 record images, ADDED 16-Jun-2024

--- Collections Updated ---

There are over 1,120 coollections on the list.  There were about that many last week also.  

I don't think that listing them all is a good use for my time or for the Internet.


My friend and SDGS colleague, Marshall, has come up with a way to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED, and to alphabetize the entries in each category. Thanks to Marshall for helping me out here!

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 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.
