Re: My dad was born in Zurich, and his mother is Swiss. I was born in Brazil. Can I g

Hey guys, thank you all for thoughtful and detailed replies :-)
I guess I need to establish if he was Swiss on birth. From what he told me that they wouldn't let his dad register him there, I'm guessing the law at the time wouldn't consider him a Swiss citizen.
I called their embassy here in Brazil and was told they have records of everyone who was born there. Nowadays everyone who is born from a Swiss mother/father is automatically Swiss via Jus Sanguinis, but if it's dependant on the law at the time he was born, then I'm probably out of luck
