Further I recommend the Uwspolczesniony Nowy Testament Biblii Gdanskiej. This is a very good, literal en modern translation of the Polish Bible. People can download a free pdf from wrotanadziei.org, or the electronic version at e-sword.net. After downloading e-Sword they can make their own parallel Bible for Bible study or learning Polish.
Exceptions to the rule for Polish citizenship
You mention “With time they can make a case more based on special consideration, than exact transference of Polish citizenship.” Do you mean that sometimes they will recognize Polish citizenship even if someone doesn’t meet the strict requirements of the law? I ask because by Grandmother was born in the US but was a Polish citizen. I have been told that my Grandmother was a dual citizen.Her parents were polish citizens when she was born in 1922 and they did not become US citizens until 1926. She married a man who was a dual Polish-American citizen and had 3 children with him. They would be Polish citizens as well as Americans. She divorced her first husband and married my Grandfather who is only an American citizen. Some say she lost her citizenship when she married my Grandfather in 1949. Some disagree and say she kept her Polish citizenship. I don’t know who is right. But I am told that even if she kept her citizenship that she could not pass it on until 1951 when the law changed and allowed married women to pass citizenship on. My Mother was born in America in 1950, just a year before she could have been a Polish citizen. Her 3 older half siblings are Poles, her mother is a Pole, her younger sister is a Pole, but my Mother is not. It seems a bit unfair. But, according to the law, that’s the way it works. In your opinion, do they make exceptions? I would like to get citizenship for her, myself, and my children. I am a successful attorney and I do not need to go to Poland for financial reasons. I am doing very well in the US. Rather, Polish citizenship is important to us for sentimental reasons. I was raised with my Polish grandmother. We sent care packages to her cousins back when the communists ruled and it was hard for them to get things that they needed in the stores. We are Poles and just want the recognition. What are your thoughts?
I understand your desire for citizenship. I 100% on your side and want you to get it. However, unless you can confirmed to be a Polish citizen through an uninterrupted bloodline based usually thought the male, you have to be living in the territory of Poland. Can you image an someone wanting to be an American citizen and not living in the USA, it would be impossible. So even though I am on your side and you could always try, I think it might not be possible.
Visa for spouse
I have question regarding visa.
I received work permit in Poland and applied for polish national visa. My wife currently has not yet found job in Poland. Could you please advise how she can legally visit Poland?
How much money
This may seem like an impossible question to answer, but i know its hard to say exact, but how much money should a person earn to live modest life style in Warsaw if they have no room mate?
It’s my understanding the cost of living is much less in Poland than the U.S.
I will be on my own and not likely to have a roommate for a year or two
You need $1,500 dollars a month to live a reasonable life in Poland. But it depends on what kind of person you are. I could live for under $1,000 others need $3,000.
