Tips on doing research in Switzerland:

Swiss citizenship is kept on three levels: nationally, the canton, and the Heimatort, or home community. For most people, citizenship was inherited. Therefore, a citizen’s descendants may never even have seen their original home community. The home community was charged with keeping track of its citizens. If a birth, marriage, or death of a citizen took place in another parish, notice of the event was often sent to the Heimatort.
Church books are one of the most reliable and accurate family history sources.
The number of emigrants who left Switzerland without permission and paying the obligatory “moving-away tax” was fairly high, so there may be no record of their departure. Passports were not registered until the mid-19th Century.

Photos and scans are not always allowed by the archives and photocopying old books is generally prohibited.
