hmmm...that's tough. I don't know too much about research in the states, but I've been thinking about your dilema all day and here's my suggestion...
You say that your grandfather was born in 1912. Do you know the state in which he was born? If you do, maybe you could look in the 1910 census and see if you find your great-grandparents listed there. The 1910 census is really great because it lists each person in the family, the age of the person, how long they've been married, how many children they've had, etc. But most importantly it will tell you where each person listed was born AND where the parents of that person were born. Then you will have some clues as to where to look next. The censuses are arranged by states though, so you would have to have an idea of which state to look in. The 1910 census has been indexed though, which should make things a lot easier!
Here is a web page that can give you more information about using census records. <http://www.kbyu.org/ancestors/records/census/intro.html>
If I think of any other ideas I'll let you know!
