In the absence of any information about when your father was born, you may wish to review the answers to Looking for 1901 birth/baptismal certificate in Poland?

If your father was born less than 100 years ago be aware of our Privacy Policy when providing any details about him within your question.

1This perhaps is better to be a comment than an answer? – Harry Vervet – 2017-09-27T02:40:49.600

@HarryVervet it's borderline but I don't think choosing answer over comment does any harm and provides slight benefit in this case – PolyGeo – 2017-09-27T02:46:19.047


For people whose civil acts (birth/death/marriage certificates) are available in the current government systems (and if talking about a father of a living person, you most definitely expect them to be available), obtaining them is free of charge for the immediate family. You might need to cover postage costs.

Unfortunately, all the forms and correspondence are required to be in Polish, so you'll need to pay someone to translate for you, if you don't know the language.
