    Hi there,

    Have a read of Lesley's stickies at the top of the General Scottish Family History forum. There are masses of helpful pointers

    Since we don't know whether you're 17 or 70, knowing that they are your grandparents doesn't help us estimate dates for them! As Jan said, most of what you need to know to begin your search is in the stickies at the top of the General Scottish forum, but with some sort of idea of time period, people could try and help - birth, marriage, death dates, even approximate, that sort of thing.
    Help us to help you!

    Finding their parents is easy - go to Scotlands People (instructions are in the sticky I posted to General Scottish) and get their marriage certificate. That will give you both sets of parents, ages, occupations, etc.
    For descendants, follow John jr's family in the census after he married.

    Please don't post only in caps - it feels like shouting!
