Does anyone have any suggestions for on site Swiss Research? [closed]

+9 votes
I will be traveling to Andermatt, Switzerland shortly and I wondering if anyone can offer any practical advice for doing research there. If you have done any research on site and can offer any tips or trick or cautions I would love to hear from you.

My attached profile is probably from there, but I have heard that women are much more difficult to trace in Switzerland. Luckily she had a son while in Switzerland, and hopefully he will give me a place to start.

I do not know of anything that can help you, but if you come across any resources for Canton Uri please add them to the Uri, Switzerland page:,_Switzerland

Good luck with your research.

I also invite you to join the Switzerland project.

If you e-mail me I can add you to the trusted list.

An absolutely super resource for Swiss research is online at:

where the church books of every parish in Canton Bern are available in pdf format.

For other Swiss Cantons, you might try a search for:
