- Raw data based on Lin Shurtliff’s accounting transaction records for the years indicated.
- Where her transactions had no name, they are collapsed under “Cash/anonymous/unknown”.
- Wherever possible efforts have been made to remove duplicates. So, donor names differing only with obvious spelling inconsistencies were harmonized. Same is true where one spouse is listed one year, another in a different year and so on (i.e., both spouses joined into one record for all transactions).
- VFW names edited so all VFW transactions sort contiguously.
- Attempt was made to sort by last name, but that was abandoned owing to issues with spouses having different names.
- Goodale donations were triple-checked. There were 3 transactions for 2012; the transaction names weren’t consistent, but assumption is that all are concert-related. Moreover, at first glance it looks as though they DID NOT FUND 2015 – and yet PROBABLY THEY DID since there is a $6,000 donation tagged to the Cathedral. Record left as delivered in Lin’s records.
