Finding Swiss Italian records

Postby jwazevedo » 12 Jul 2009, 15:09

While most of my relatives came from the Como region of Northern Italy, a few of them were born just over the border in the Swiss Italian region around Bellinzona (surnames Baroni and Mozzi). I've been spoiled in researching the Como relatives because the civic records are available on Ancestry. In the case of the Swiss side, Ancestry has little. Can someone point me to a good source for researching the Swiss Italians?

Thanks!
Jerry
