Enter the means by which the person’s membership terminated, using one of the following abbreviations:
- T by certificate of Transfer from this congregation
- D by the Death of the individual
- S by action of the Session (or B for Board, C for Council)
The governing body is responsible for revising the historic roll at least annually. Names of inactive members who have been absent for too long in the opinion of the governing body (perhaps three years) should be noted as removed. However, an effort should be made to contact the individuals to be removed, as a courtesy.
Document in the session/board/council minutes all decisions to remove a name from the roll.
If a different method of removal is to be documented, choose a logical abbreviation and explain it in a footnote on that page.
