Thank you ahead of time for reading this and helping me understand if I can claim French nationality for me and potentially my children through my mother's nationality. I've read a number of the similar threads on this website around French nationality being passed down, but all the cases seem to be unique, so it's been difficult for me to draw various conclusions. Sorry if I sound like a super novice - I certainly am at this point!
Here's a bit of background:
My mother was born in France in July 1932 to two foreign nationals that arrived in France from Poland in 1928. My mother was brought up, went to school, and worked as a seamstress in Paris until she left France in April 1952 to go live and work in Canada with her two parents and younger sister. It is, however, my understanding of French law, that my mother would have become a French citizen by the time she reached majority age in 1950 which would have then passed onto me when I was born in 1955 in Canada. Is this correct? My mother naturalized as a Canadian citizen in 1958 after my birth.
All of my mother's older siblings remained in France and I'm still very close to their children (my cousins). All of my aunts and uncles in France have passed away at this point.
My question is then, based on this limited information, can you tell me if there's a possibility that my mother passed on French nationality to myself in 1955 at the time of my birth? Additionally, is there anything that could have broken the link of French nationality between my mother and me and subsequently between me and my children?
Thank you again for your help and let me know if there is anything that needs to be expanded upon or clarified!
