Religion in Family History

It does not take too much searching through family history before you start learning about the religion of your ancestors. Religion has played a large part in migration patterns over the centuries and you may find that at one time or another your ancestors moved because of their religion. Religion also may have had a great influence on who your ancestors married, their occupation and many other aspects of life. It is not easy to discount the fact that the religion of your ancestors has helped shape who you are today?
