  1. My Great Grandfather comes from Dobrzyków, Mazowieckie, Poland. He was born in 1896 and left when he was 17 in 1913 he left Poland. In 1917 He has documents Stating he renounces The Russian Government in US Naturalization Document. He is not a US Citizen He Goes to WW1 to Fights with Poland he gets he’s military training in Canada Under French and Polish Military. He leaves and becomes a Captian of the Polish Army. After the War he comes. back to the USA. In 1924 he signs naturalization document again saying he renounces The Republic of Poland and will Preside Permanently in USA.

    I thought one can have two Citizenship one in US and the Other in Another Country. Does that mean if he renounces this in 1924 it break the cain of decent of Citizenship.

    1. Hello Dolev,

      Thank you for your question.

      Yes, there is a possibility that you are eligible for Polish citizenship, but we would need information on your grandmother’s parents, as she left Poland as a minor.

      If you would like to confirm your eligibility with one of our experts, please email us at

  4. Both my grandfathers were Jews with Polish citizenship who lived and raised their families in Germany, and who left Germany just before WWII. They both eventually became U.S. citizens. Am I eligible for Polish citizenship?

  5. Hello professor – I am not sure if you are still answering questions on this page, but was hoping to get some clarification on whether or not I would be eligible to apply for Polish citizenship by descent.

    My great grandparents from my father’s side were all from Poland – my great grandfather John Pezdek, was born in 1892 in from Suchy Grunt and arrived in the US in 1907. According to the 1920’s census he was not natialized, but shows that he was come the 1930’s census. He married in 1912 to Sophia Dziedzic (born 1894 in Poland, though have yet to find the city) who arrived in 1907 and never nationalized. Additionally my other great grand parents Benjamin Olechnicki ( born 1891 in Jzeisczie, Poland, arrived in US in 1910) who did nationalize, married Alice (Ellis) K. Olechnicki (Unsure of maiden name) – born 1894, arrived in US in 1912 and never nationalized.

    Additionally, I have a cousin (the grandson of my great grandmothers sister) who is a Polish citizen and Lemko ( Michael Hytko) who currently resides in Poland, and recently got land back from the Polish government which had been my ancestors farmland, on my mothers side.

    I am wondering if any of these family ties would allow for me to apply for Polish citizenship, as I know prior to 1920 it is more complicated given the territorial boundaries and occupying countries at that time. If it seems like I case that could succeed, i would love to know, and know how to best take the first steps towards applying. Thank you so much for your time and consideration – I hope to hear from you.

    1. Dear Sarah,
      Thanks for sharing this information.
      Polaron would need to do a comprehensive assessment – essentially if John did not naturalize before 1920 and it can be proven he was a resident of Poland, that’s the only avenue to your citizenship through descent.
      The team would be happy to help you clarify, please contact
      Yours Truly,
