I am a United States citizen attempting to obtain dual-citizenship as a Polish citizen.
I?m requesting your help because I?ve been informed that, in order for me to obtain my citizenship, I need to prove both of the following:
1. At least one of your Polish ancestors should have declared his Polish citizenship in the Polish consulate after the 20th January 1920. We need the proof that this took place.
2. Polish population census listing at least of your ancestor(s) has to be found.
