Getting Dual Citizenship without father...?

I'm curious. Right now I'm trying to get my Great-great-grandmother's death records (from New Jersey) for genealogical purposes, but I don't want to get my dad involved (for proof of blood relationship) so I'm acquiring my Grandfather's help to bypass that problem. Easy.

My dad? Well I don't want anything to do with him, Long story, Also irrelevant story.

BUT...how do or can also I aquire dual citizenship in Poland, again without using my dad? I'm sure I need to prove my ancestry going back to Poland. Just a couple of generations back (my Grandfather's father). Is this doable?

Because your great great grandparents came to America before Poland was reestablished as a country in 1918, you can not obtain dual citizenship with Poland. When the family came to America they were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, there was no Poland, so technically we have no Claim to Polish citizenship by tracing back to our ancestors.

As BCz wrote, you won't get it automatically by ancestry alone. You have No "right" to a citizenship per say, but you have legitimate reasons to try to get a Polish citizenship based on your heritage.

Having aquired a work permit/invitation for a job in Poland would work stronger in your favor. Informing about your background (identity and connection with Poland and the depth of it).

If you will be easily swayed by a refusal, you will only show lack of interest and investment in to it. You can't treat it only as a fancy collection card in your wallet.

If your serrious about it, show how much to the government employees at your closest Polish consulate/embassy.

Now one has to pass B-1 Polish exam to even get a permanent resident card

Correct.
