This is a collection of images of church records extracts for several Swiss cantons, however, it is not comprehensive. The title page of each book lists the surnames with town(s) and canton(s) from where the records were extracted.

Swiss church records are typically written in German or Latin. These records are in German. Regional dialect may affect the spelling of some German words and the use of vocabulary words. 

The extracts of these church books cover a majority of the population of Pratteln for the years 1550-1875.
