Catholic Church Records

Added and Updated Record Collections at FamilySearch.org – Week of 27 October to 2 November 2019

I am trying to keep up with the new and updated record collections at FamilySearch   (https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list) every week.

As of 2 November 2019, there were 2,642 historical record collections on FamilySearch (an increase of 2 from last week):

The added or updated collections this week are (from the FamilySearch listing):

Alabama Deaths, 1908-19741,875,610Nov 1, 2019

===========================================

In order to select a specific record collection on FamilySearch, go to  https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list 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.
