Make sure you understand the system of Swiss citizenship / place of origin: Swiss inherit the right of citizenship of their father. Therefore Swiss always know where they originally came from. For family researches in Switzerland, it's therefore important to know what place of origin (which is not necessarely the place of birth or hometown) the emigrants came from. Usually only at this place one will find the civil records and the church records of the ancestors.
