Just curious how much has been given cumulatively by exmo's. I figure that I gave about $100,000 before pulling the plug. You? Anyone know precisely what they gave?

Well, I am in a lot better shape --
I was BIC, became an atheist at age 14, and quit LDSinc. at age 17. My lifetime tithing was all of $50. I only paid that because my teenage-years job was shoveling snow and taking care of the garbage at a rental 4-plex my father owned. He paid me a good wage for doing that work and he expected me to pay tithing on it. So I kind of did.

My best guess is that my father paid in excess of $100k in tithing. Money down the phoquing rathole.

So Great Grandpa died and leaves mom $100,000

Great Grandpas already tithed -$10,000
G Grandpa leaves Mom the balance $100,000( mom well off)
Mom pays tithing -$10,000
Mom gifts $90,000 to only daughter
Daughter pays $9000 tithe -$9000
daughter give $81000 to married 4 kids
4 Married kids pay tithe $ 2020 each and give -$8080
great grandkids more $$$ to tithe on -$????

so $37080 + paid to the TSCC on gramps gift that he already paid tithing on the Gross.
