It took about 8.5 weeks (from the point of payment) for the records to arrive.

I was hoping for a few pieces of information, however I was pleasantly surprised. 22 documents were at my fingertips, including two photos.

For starters, all the documents, except one are all in Polish. The files range from personnel records, lists of qualifications, progress reports, application for day passes, Military Academy records, registration notebooks (with all of his handwriting), medals received and a very long Military Service Record!

This is just the beginning of the adventure. More to post once I dig in.

    Do I need fathers birth certificate, not available. Death certificate is all I have. Father and Mother

      Hey Barbara! Good question. If your father is the one who was serving, you do not need his birth certificate – just your own, or your mother’s (depending on who is next of kin). In my situation, my Babcia would have been next of kin, but she passed away – thus I needed my dad’s birth certificate because he is next of kin. I hope this helps 🙂
