Ordering certificates from the gov, advice pls.

I'm at the point now where I have to start shelling out some cash and order me up some birth certificates from the government. My target is my dads mothers side, which is a complete mystery to the entire family for some reason. What I'm going to do is order my grandmothers full birth certificate, which will give me the names of her parents. While I have much info. on grandma such as birth date, death date, marriage, etc... Once I get the certificate from the government , i'll have no information on her parents except their names. Is that enough to continue? If I submit a form with nothing but two names (no dates or other info at all) will that be enough for the vital statistics branch to continue the line back? Anyone have any first hand experience with this? Thanks
