A few more details names & dob of your paternal grandparents? :-D :-D

Is your father alive? If not, then his name, year and place of birth. If he and your mother were married, his father should be shown on the MC

Look your fathers birth up on freebmd if born 1911- c1955. That will show his mother's maiden name assuming she was married. Prior to that mmn is only shown on the certificate, not the index.

Then you can

a) search for the names of siblings with same surname and mmn
b) search for the parent's marriage.
