Do you mean you were born in 1964? If your mother was a British Citizen by birth then yes you are entitled to British citizenship. You have to register however and you will need to produce evidence that your mother is a British citizen ( or citizen of the UK and Colonies as it then was) and was born here. You apply using form UKM you can find the details on the UKBA website here:
