Finding the New Collections at FamilySearch.org

I was excited this week to see more new collections at FamilySearch! This is almost a weekly event and I struggle to keep up.
Is there a way for me to check to see if there are new collections for my area of research?
1. Go to Familysearch.org, hover over Search and select Records from the dropdown menu.
2. Now you’re on the Historical Records search page – resist doing a search! – scroll down to Browse Collections and click once on the region you want to research – for me this is usually United Kingdom and Ireland
3. Click once on the column heading Last Updated and the list will sort into chronological order with the newest collections listed first. I was excited to see indexes and images for Cornwall and some Devon parishes were recently added.
You can select and sort All Collections but be prepared for a delay before seeing the results.
