I got this book because half of my family tree is Swiss and I have been unsure how to tackle that research. Attempts to enlist cousins to the cause has been unsuccessful :-(
The entry on Switzerland in this Guidebook is brief, but I feel more confident about making a start. I hope I can report a breakthrough in due course.
There is also useful general information and advice and some appendices and glossaries at the end.
