The Switzerland project has been developed and most of the the Canton categories have been created. I have added the appropriate Category "Zürich, Switzerland" to Hanns Jacob Beter's profile. If you want to include categories for the towns of Schneit and Kyburg I would suggest creating separate pages for each of them. However, at this point there really is no need to create sub-categories under "Zürich, Switzerland" for towns and villages unless you have more than a few individuals whom you will be adding the category label to. I see you have only one, so the extra layer is superfluous.

We're looking for more members for the Switzerland project. E-mail me if you want to be added.

Switzerland does not yet have a very well developed category structure. There is the English category "Switzerland" and the German "Schweiz". Neither of them has subcategories for the Kantons, There is a category "Zürich, Switzerland", but that appears to be for the city. Besides the city of Zürich there is the Kanton Zürich which is what you would want for your towns. Schneit and "Kuehburg" don't have much to do with each other besides being both in the same Kanton. Schneit consists of Ober-, Mittel-, and Unterschneit and all are part of Hagenbuch in the Bezirk Winterthur in the Kanton Zürich. There is no Kuehburg, only a Kyburg. That town fused with Illnau-Effretikon on Jan. 1, 2016, don't know what the new town is now called. And it is in the Bezirk Pfäffikon of the Kanton Zürich.
