Subject: Transaction Maps - Time Limit?

I was browsing around looking at the maps showing from where I had received and sent books, and I noticed that one city to which I'd sent books was not listed.  I know I sent books to a member in Scottsdale, AZ, it sticks in my mind for several reasons.  I'd been visiting my mother in Phoenix and she gave me a bunch of cookbooks she no longer used, and I brought them home to Los Angeles and posted them.  Seven of them were requested by the same member who lived in Scottsdale, just a few miles from my mom's house.  I thought, if only I'd logged on to PBS and listed them while I was still at Mom's, I could have just dropped them off to her instead of shipping them.  Because it was seven books I sent them in a box and they actually went "missing" in the mail, but she received them a few days after that and all was well.  This was about a year and a half ago.  Now on the map of where I have sent books, a transaction to Scottsdale is not shown.  Do they drop transactions off the map after a certain time to keep them from getting too cluttered, or is everything we've sent & received supposed to be on there?  Just curious.

I thought it kept everything.  I know that all of my transactions are there of course I haven't checked them according to the map

If the member has moved, the transaction on the map moves too.

Find the transaction in your transaction history, and see if you can tell where that person lives now.
