New Caledonie is a french overseas territory. If french knowledge is required for getting french visa, you can study conversation french in Alliance
francaise and produce the french study certificate. If you have sufficient english knowledge, you can try to get exemption. Yours sincerely

If your grand father was a renoncant, ie a person who renounced his personal law (hindu, nuslim etc...)
and opted to be governed by french law (code civil)as per decret dated 21.09.1881, then you will be able to ask for a certified true copy of your grand father's birth, For renoncants, the registers of birth, death and marriage were maintained in triplicate, one in the local Mairie, another in the concerned civil court's secretariat (greffe) and the third one in the central etat civil of Nantes. Yours sincerely

Your details are insufficient, Any how I say that if your mother born in 1966 proves that either her father or mother was french at the time of her birth, she can claim for fr. natioality, If the case of your mother and that of her elder brothers are the same, she can repeat what they did. Yours sincerely

If you prove that your father or mother was french at the time of your birth in 1964, you will be eligible to apply for cert. of fr. nationality. For this you have to study the effects of the franco indian treaty of cession, 1956 on your parents. If you are really interested, you can get the assistance of a french advocate in Paris, Yours sincerely,
