    Seeking Birth Record - Ryzsard, Hersx and/or Sylka Szot

    Stacy Dietzler Adventurer

      For the past year, I have been working on obtaining dual citizenship - U.S. & Poland and trying to locate my deceased father - Ryszard Szot birth record as well as my grandfather - Hersx and grandmother- Sylka Szot. My father was born 9/13/26 in Lodz, my grandfather Hersx, 1889 in Warsaw, and my grandmother Sylka, 1890 Konska Wola. I've cobbled together all of the above info via copy of the family passport, ship manifest,(they arrived in NY on 5/16/1939 via Aquitania) photos, ancestry.com, findmygravecom and historyhub.com. To date the below institutions have been contacted and the searches have come back been negative. The only place that was a positive was the USCIS where my fathers Naturalization Certificate (I have a copy from ancestry.com) and an Alien Record index search have been located. I requested a copy of the two records which will take 180 business days after waiting previously 180 business days for the index search confirmation. The most important piece I need to move the dual citizenship through the last step of the process is a birth record of either my father, grandfather or grandmother. I don't know where else to search and I'm at a major roadblock.

       

      Are there any other institutions that you may be aware of that are not on the list below that should be contacted for possibly locating the birth records?Thanks in advance for your help!
