Heimatort for naturalized citizens

What do you have under Heimatort or lieu d'origine?? for those who weren't born Swiss and come from non-Swiss parents!

Re: Heimatort for naturalized citizens

The non-Swiss spouse takes the Heimatort of the Swiss spouse I believe, upon naturalisation. In other cases, the Heimatort is left blank or Heimatstaat.

I don't think it can be left blank. It's at least the commune that accepted your naturalisation and as citizen.

This is true in my case, plus my 2 children, although we don't live there - that is where our family book is registered.

Confirmed. We actually did go to our heimatort/commune d'origine last year - as it seemed 'wrong' that they should 'adopt' my British husband, and have me, my children and grand-children on their books, without any of us ever visiting there.

Re: Heimatort for naturalized citizens

Not much - there is not much to do there! We went to THE local café, and I asked the Patron is there are still people in the village with my maiden name. And he laughed .. pointed out 3 people out of the 10 there, and said 'there they are'. We had a chat with them - walked around for a few minutes, and that was that! Husband got his naturalisation through end of Feb. Got lots of cousins and half cousins in the USA who also hail from there, and who've never been. My dad was the youngest, so stayed in CH with his slighlty older brother. The others were put on a one way train to Le Havre, with a second class ticket to NY, and told they had to go and earn their own crust in the 30s. They all did very well btw.
