Let's see....Dutch Reformed, Roman Catholic, Free Church/Presbyterian, Salvation Army, Church of England, Buddhist.

However, the most interesting were Bible Christians, an offshoot of the Methodists founded in Cornwall and Devon. Many Cornish emigrated to Canada and certain northern parts of the U.S. Midwest, so the BC's sent missionaries to start chapels for them. One grt grtgrandfather was one of these missionaries in the mid-1800s. The B.C.'s were absorbed into the Canada Methodists in the 1880s, and a grt grandfather was one of the last surviving Bible Christian ministers to die in the 20th century.

So far on my dad's side, they seemed to be German Reformed, and then switched to Methodist..tho my grandmother was a PA Dutch Pow-wow.
My mom's side as far as I know they were Catholic, but I don't know how far back. My mom and her mom are all I know about.
