  1. Hello,
    I am eligible for Polish citizenship through my great grandfather but I have not found him on Polish records other than his birth record from 1905. I did find out that his father died in Poland in 1923 so Poland was already Poland by then and we have his birth, marriage, and death record available. Would those vital records be enough to prove he was a citizen?

    1. Hello Andrea,

      Thank you for getting in touch.

      The records you’ve found are definitely a great start! You would probably need to find a few additional records, however, to prove that your great-grandfather and his family resided in Poland after 1920.

      If you’d like some more guidance and information, please feel free to email the team at citizenship@polaron.com.au.

  2. Hi,
    I am trying to get a copy of my dad’s birth certificate from Poland. I do not speak Polish and he doesn’t anymore either. I want to get him a passport so we can take a family trip to the city he is from. Do you have any ideas?

    1. Hello Terry,

      Thank you for your question.

      It does depend on the country you are enquiring about dual citizenship for, but most EU countries do allow dual citizenship with the United States.

  3. Dear Prof. Adamski,
    I am a Brazilian descendant of Poles who emigrated before 1920 to the city of Curitiba. If the birth documents of my male ancestors are found in Polish territory and the Brazilian government certifies that of their own free will they never gave up their Polish citizenship, would I be eligible for Polish citizenship?
    Thank yoou for your answear.

    1. Hello Rafael,

      Thank you for getting in touch. As your Polish ancestors left Poland prior to 1920 (when the first Polish citizenship law was enacted), you would not be eligible for Polish citizenship through descent.

      However, you would be eligible for Polish citizenship through Presidential Grant! Please get in touch with our team at citizenship@polaron.com.au if you would like some more information about the process.

      Yours truly,

  6. Hi
    My grandfather left Germany in 1938 due to Nazi regime and rescinded his nationality. My mother was born in South Africa. Would she qualify for Herman Citizenship and would the children and grandchildren also qualify

    1. Dear Annemarie,

      Thank you for the question.

      If your grandfather suffered persecution, then your mother could potentially be eligible for German citizenship. Please feel free to contact our friendly team of citizenship experts for more information: https://polaron.com.au/contact-eu-services/

  7. My great, great grandmother came to the US circa 1920 from the village of Rymanow which at the time I believe was part of Austria-Hungry, but is now part of Poland. I know this because I have her Ellis island records from when she came to the US. Am I eligible for citizenship in Poland, Austria, or Hungary?

    1. Dear Emily,

      Thank you for the message.

      You’re most likely eligible for Polish citizenship, if it can be proven that she was a Polish citizen before departing to the US. Unfortunately, you would not be eligible for Austrian or Hungarian citizenship.
