gruezi everybody.i am new to this forum and have a question (actually more of an apprehension). My wife has just given birth to a baby boy in switzerland and for the baby's birth certificate i was asked by hospital authorities to submit me and my wife's auslander cards, passports and marriage certificate(all in original) which i promptly did. Now i recvd a letter from gemeinde asking me to further submit me and my wife's (birth certificates). To be honest the country from where i am , nobody made birth ceriticates 30 years back and now somehow i suddenly need it or else as mentioned in the letter from gemeinde my son will not be issued a birth ceriticate which i feel is quite wierd. how else would i be able to make a passport and other important docs. has anybody faced this problem before. i definitely cannot get a birth ceritificate for me and my wife after 30 years or so. any suggestion/feedback would be much appreciated. many thanks.

The best thing to do is to call your country's embassy or mission in Switzerland. They should be used to this and have some kind of documents that will be acceptable.
When I got married here, they were looking for confirmation that I was free to marry from my community in Ireland - and since this does not exist I was at a loss as to what to do until I contacted the Irish Embassy in Bern, who told me that they had a "Form" to fix this! A couple of minutes at the embassy and I had all I needed - a nice parchment in German with a gold harp and seal on it.
