For canton Zürich there are census records available.  These were originally done to make of record of the members of the Protestant Reformed church.  There are also some censuses for Thurgau, St. Gallen, and a few towns from Aargau, Appenzell and Schaffhausen.

This census includes names of each family member, their ages and sometimes baptism dates.  A helpful guide for these census has been compiled by the Genealogical Society of Utah.  The call number for this guide is 949.4 x336.  FHL INTL Fiche 6001309  Also on microfilm.
