Collecting dataIn order for this project to be successful, I'm going to need lots of data (around 50,000 data entries) and in order to get that, I'm completely at the mercy of random strangers like you.
All of the data I want is already out there. Members in charge of writing and printing the ward programs may have several months' worth (or more) saved on their computer. Bishopric members or ward music chairs may also have this information saved as a spreadsheet. What I am doing is trying to get in contact with those people and get them to send me those spreadsheets.
