Born overseas and need to know where to authenticate BC

Postby lisahickey » 27 Feb 2012, 19:23

We are in the process of applying for citizenship through descent and I was born in Morocco (US citizen at birth), so the State Department is the issuer of my birth certificate - they can also apostille it for me, but I'm not sure where to get it authenticated. We are applying in NY - do I get it done in DC since that's where State Dept is? Has anyone run into this before?

Thanks in advance!

An update - the NYC consulate says that the embassy in DC has jurisdiction over my BC to authenticate, in case anyone else has a similar issue.
