I just found out my birth papers list my mother as having been born in Warsaw Poland. Now I know that was in 1925 or 27. She ended up in Germany in 1945. Some how she got from one location to the other. Now it those days one must have had to have papers right? Was that called a pass port, and where would it have been obtained, and how would I find a listing of it?

Thanks

Passports started to become popular with countries in the early 1900's. It was not really widely untill after ww1. The leauge of Nations and later the United Nations after WW2 reall started to put these into effect. So chances are they did have to have a passport. And yes they were called passports. I do not know where they would of been obtained or where you could find a listing. But you might want to ask the passport divison or go ask the post office!

She ended up in Germany in 1945.

Probably a trip sponsored by mustache guy and co. travel company.

My Great-grandmother got a passport from the London Polish Embassy in 1935. Where do they keep records of this issued passport? I have only the passport number.

Try to contact polish home office "Ministerstwo Spraw Wewnętrznych". Try that first. Good luck!
