British Nationality could be obtained through your birth, or through the birth of any one of your parents or grandparents, in Malta. This arises because of Britain's relationship with Malta and Britain's Colonial history.
To determine what form of British Nationality you might have, an analysis of your family's history must be done, and then applying it to the Nationality laws of Malta that were passed over the years.
