Life / Where in Warsaw would be a good place to buy an engagement ring?? [5]

You could also check shops that offer jewellry designed by young Polish designers:

zero925.pl/strona/2/english.html
i-techne.pl/teksty.php?t=onas
pieknerzeczy.org/index_en.htm

You may find something more original and unique than in chain stores (like Kruk, Apart etc.)

Good luck!

Life / Help with bureaucracy in Poland regarding citizenship [17]

If you live abroad and you want to submit the application yourself you can send it by mail or submit it in the Polish Consulate.

Please note however that the Voivode's Office will contact you later (e.g. because something is wrong with your application or to let you know its decision),by sending letters. And they do not send letters abroad...

So the letter intended for you may just be put into the files and never delivered to you... For this purpose you need a person based in Poland that would be authorized to receive correspondence from the Office - I called this person a proxy but maybe it is not the correct term in English (in Polish: pełnomocnik do doręczeń).

Hope it is clear now :)

Genealogy / How to find a burial site / records in Poland... [78]

Hi,

As far as I know there is no central inventory of graves in Poland...

You can send me an e-mail through this website or provide me with yours, I could check that for you.

Hi,

Maybe try this link: polskie-cmentarze.com/pulawy/grobonet/start.php?id=form

You just need to enter the name...

If it is not there, I may try to find contact details for the cemeteries in Pulawy (it seems that there are about three cemeteries where he could have been interred). However, you would need someone speaking Polish because I don't think they will be able to communicate in English...

Hi,

There is a website of Pulawy cemeteries where you can search for graves:
polskie-cmentarze.com/pulawy/

You need to click 'SZUKAJ GROBU'.

If you don't find his grave using this website, the best way would be to contact the office of each cemetary in Puławy and ask...

Hope it helps,

Life / Help with bureaucracy in Poland regarding citizenship [17]

Can you prove that your grandfather and your mother didn't take up any other citizenship before 1962? Under the 1951 and 1920 Polish citizenship acts, that would have lost them their citizenship. Under the 2009 citizenship act lost citizenship can be reclaimed but only by the person who lost it.

It's not quite correct. Not always a man, in this case your grandfather would lost a Polish citizenship even if he became a citizenship of a different country.

It depends on a case if you need to hire someone to help you to prepare an application, a person who would help you obtain required certificates etc. If you do have most of documentation in you possession, you may do it by your own or/and if you need to obtain documentation from Poland and you know how to it. Please also note that you would need to have a proxy based in Poland to receive letters from a Polish authority if you decided to submit an application of confirmation Polish citizenship.
