German citizenship laws do not work like US citizenship laws. The USA, like many "New World" countries, has jus soli

Germany, like many of the European countries, has jus sanguinis
, "right of blood" citizenship laws. You are German if you are born to a parent who is a German citizen. You are not neccesarily German just because you are born on German soil. There are second and third-generation Turks in Germany who were born and raised in Germany, but are not German citizens!
's mother was herself the daughter of a German man, she is NOT a German citizen and therefore could confer no citizenship rights upon her own child, namely GSX0r
