Re: I need advice on Citizenship through Ancestry

I was just looking into trying for my Swiss Citizenship. My mother was born and raised in Bern/Lucerne until she emigrated to the US in the 50's. She married my American father and I was born in the USA. I am now 51 and my mother passed away almost 2 years ago. I remember her talking about me about how I should get my Citizenship when I was 18, but then nothing was ever done. I really would love to spend quality time in Switzerland and with my Swiss relatives. I have grow up going to Switzerland and have been a few times over the last 10-12 years (but only 2 or maybe 3x in the last 10 years). I do not have a job that I could get a work visa. It will be a year or so before I could actually make the move over (dad has stage 4 panreatic cancer - he is on month 4 and doing well, but we have no idea how long he has).
I have a feeling I am WAY past the deadline and I know the Swiss like their rules.
I just really need to find a way to get there and live and experience my family history.
