FAQ: Aren't you automatically Romanian since your mom was born there?

Question
You then come waltzing in and announce that you have just found out that your mother was still a Romanian citizen. if you knew all along that your mother HAD BEEN BORN in Romania (forget her citizenship for the moment, here), why didn't you make raising this with the Romanian authorities your very first action? They would have informed you that she was still a citizen; more pertinently, they would have informed you that this fact would in itself render you eligible for citizenship.

In simple terms, here, you omitted to tell them something very important when you first started your enquiries about citizenship. Why? How could you not think it was highly relevant, that your mother had been born there? This has nothing to do whatsoever with what you THOUGHT her citizenship was or what her name was. Is it that you omitted something really important through your negligence, and are now trying to cover your embarrassment?

Answer
I did raise the born in Romania question, showed the passport from Romanian. However, since it was issued over 40 years ago, and my mom changed her name multiple times, and got married. She has to register all these things. They told me that she and I are citizens, but before I can get the passport, reigstries need to be made.
