Zivilstandamt parent birth cert
 
Recently ,after no small effort, I obtained a birth cert for my son born in Switzerland from the Zivilstandamt in Solothurn. During this process they had asked for my original Birth cert and a notarised translation which I gave them, now they won't give back my original birth cert , they say I have to reapply to wherever it was issued for a new one.

I find this bizarre, the reason they give is that they need my birth cert for their civil registry, here is the answer I got from them. What I don't understand is why they need the original when they have a notarised translated copy????

Die Original Dokumente bleiben bei unseren Akten, da sie die Grundlage zur Aufnahme der Personendaten in das Schweizer Personenstandsregister bilden. Wir können Ihnen lediglich gebührenpflichtige, beglaubigte Fotokopien zustellen oder Sie bestellen wieder direkt neue Original Dokumente bei der zuständigen Behörde.
