Genealogy of Tamaqua Churches

The following JPG file gives a rough time line of churches inside the Borough of Tamaqua.  In many cases, the beginning of a particular church is ambiguous; the date a congregation considered themselves a church, the date the church began keeping its own records, and the date that the sanctuary first came into existence frequently differ by many years (especially between the latter two). 

When the beginning or ending years of a church are known, the year is stated in parenthesis following the name of the church.  When dates are not know (as is the case with the German Catholic Church), a dotted line is used to indicate the church's approximate length of existence.
