Claiming U.S. Citizenship Based on Parentage
Some individuals may be unaware that they have a claim to U.S. Citizenship based on parentage. For example, a person born on outside of the United States to U.S. citizen parent(s) may have already derived citizenship through his parent(s), and may be eligible to obtain a Certificate of Citizenship to show documented proof of his U.S. Citizenship status.
