We can't help you. You need to direct your inquires at the nearest French consulate.

Not sure if that's how French law works. In the US if you are born on the country you are automatically a citizen. But not every country has the same type of law and your nationality may depend on that of your parents.

Strongly suggest you consult an attorney (we're not expert and really can't advise you) to see if you qualify to be a French citizen.

"Through birth in France (law of place of birth)
The child (legitimate or natural) is French if born in France to at least one parent also born in France

Simply being born in France does not confer French nationality except in the case of a child born to unknown or stateless parents, or to aliens whose nationality is not transmitted to the child.

A child born in France before January 1, 1994, to a parent born in a former French overseas territory prior to its acquisition of independence, is automatically French. The same is true for a child born after January 1, 1963, to a parent born in Algeria before July 3, 1962. "

Normally, to benefit from jus soli in France, you have to declare your intention to claim French citizenship between the age of 16 and 18.
