You file a Freedom of Information Application for proof of your admission. If possible you get your parents signatures too so you can have proof they naturalized.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
YEs you can start with FOIA. Eventually you will get the records and you can take them to an immigration attorney for a consultation. If your facts are try and both of your parents where US citizens before you turned 18 while you were a green card holder at the time, you should be a US citizen indeed. You can file N 600 to ask for certificate of citizenship and get it this way. You will need at least your Alien number for that. That one you will get from the result of that FOIA filing. Talk to an immigration lawyer for more specific guidance.
