Do you have a German birth certificate? German birth certificates issued until 1998 state whether the parents were married at the time of the birth. If you do not have a German birth certificate, you should be able to get a copy from the Cologne registry, i.e. "Standesamt Köln". Generally, if your parents were living in Germany when they decided to get married, they could only get married under German law in front of a German registrar. US law may disagree - your parents may be considered common law spouses if they were living together in the US, or they could have entered into a marriage in front of an US army or consular officer in Germany which would be considered valid under US (but not under German) law, but that is beyond my expertise.
