I have become a U.S. citizen through naturalization,

I have become a U.S. citizen through naturalization, received my naturalization certificate and immediately after my U.S. passport.I also applied for U.S. passports for two of my children (aged 11 and 12) who were Legal Permanent Residents at the time of application and automatically derived their citizenship through me, and they now got their U.S. passports. I understand that for all intents and purposes they are now officially registered American citizens. I do not wish to go through the process of also submitting a N-600 form and applying for a Certificate of Citizenship for them.My question is the following:Any reason to apply a Certificate of Citizenship for my kids after they have already got their U.S. passports?What are the advantages of a Certificate of Citizenship over an American passport, if any?Does a passport create a record of my child's citizenship with the U.S. government registry the same as a Certificate of Citizenship? Is that the same registry for USCIS and for the Department of State?Once a passport has been approved can an application for a Certificate of Citizenship be denied?As my kids are minor and will have to renew their passports in 5 years, if they don't have a certificate of citizenship at the time of the renewal – is that a problem? I understand that they will need to submit a DS-11 form again (renewal of passport issued to a minor age 15 or younger) like in the case of a new passport with an evidence of citizenship. If the family circumstances change and they will be living outside of the U.S. at the time of application for the new passports - Is the question of their eligibility for a passport can be raised again and all the supporting documents establishing their eligibility for citizenship when they were 11 and 12 would need to be re-submitted (please also bear in mind that their Green Cards were taken from them when they received their passports)?Thanks in advance for your prompt response.

We adopted our daughter in 1982 from Korea and she had an IR-4 visa, we don't know what happened to the naturalization papers, now they are saying she has to apply for naturalization on her own. Both parents are American citizens and we can't find her temp green card given to her but she did have permanent residence status on her pass port. And we have the Judgement and Decree for the adoption and Notice of approval for her visa petition but we need to find out her visa number and also find out if she is automatically qualified as a naturalized citizen when she was adopted?
