HiThanks for your question .For clarity and the avoidance of doubt, could you please respond to the following USING THE SAME NUMBERING:-1. Where are you please2. Did your grandparents remain polish citizens for the remainder of their livesKind regards.Tom
Hi Tom, I am in NY. My grandparents became American citizens...both of them, I believe... They left because they are /were jewish and Staying in Poland was becoming increasingly difficult. I have to find the exact year(s) they emigrated.... I also have my Paternal grandmother who was born in Hungary....then emigrated to Israel. Again, I have to find her information.
Hi, Okay, it may be difficult to be precise unless you know when they acquired their US citizenship. Do you think they became US citizens prior to 1951?Tom
You cpuld get the polish citizenship at the closer Polish embassy in 7/8 months, in polish its only takes 4/5 weeks
You will need the passports and births certifications of your grandpas
