Hi, I know this is probably a daft question - but how would you know if your ancestor was of a different religion i.e. Jewish or Catholic? I ask as rumours abound that there is Jewish ancestry but I can't find any clues.

check their religious affiliations-baptism?confirmation?bar mitzvah ,ketuba etc

check which cemeteries they are buried in.

can always check your DNA.

do not go by ancestry's list of p ossible jewish ancestry.but do go by their census listing of ethnicity or language.spoken.

Have you found records/data on those family members? If you go back far enough, you may start to find names or records that don't make sense within your assumed cultural or religious milieu.

Perhaps post examples of what you've found.
