Sir,
You can try, But the registrar(greffier en chef) in charge of french nationality department, Paris, will refuse, for the reason that your father's nativity (french origin) is not proved in the absence of your grand father4s birth certificate, You may request him in the absence of the said document and on seeing the non availability certificate adn other subseqent official documents (his marriage certificate), serice certificates or other title deeds about his property whcih mention his place of birth,
Otherwise, you can straightaway file a suit before the competent court, in Paris, For this you have engage a french lawyer practising before french court in France, He/she will tax about 2 1/2 lakhs rupees plus case fling charges and amin's fees. Yours sicnerely
