Hi Charlie,
You will have to provide where in Poland your ancestors were born and/or raised before you can research any records there.
The reason for that is that there are no central digitized records for Poland. All of Polish vital records (births, marriages and deaths) are recorded and filed by the location where they took place. Similar to our local vital records here in the U.S.
You will have to determine the family ancestral home by tracing the U.S. records with that information for Paul Canter and Nettie Seitz then trace that information back to where they were born or immigrated from in Poland.
It appears that you already have a good start with Nellie’s Naturalization documents. Can you share the information contained in that document? What name is on the document? When and at what port did she arrive? Where was her port of departure? What was the name of the ship?
With that information we can hopefully trace back the ancestral home and tell you where you can locate the family vital records in Poland.
Best regards,
