Can you indicate the full names of your grandparents, their birth and marriage years and locations. Location would be country, county and city.
Mary Ann King is my Great Grandmother, born  1857 in England and moved to North America. In 1923 came to Calgary, Alberta Canada on a holiday, my dad was her grandson.
Have you tried familysearch.org, a good free site?
We're glad to have you with us Catherine. Be sure to let your Greeters know if you have any questions about how to do something at WikiTree.

Hello Catherine,

Mary Ann King was christened 12 April 1857 at Bristol, St Philip and Jacob, Gloucestershire, England. Her parents are George and Elizabeth King.

Mary Ann Morris King was christened 8 Nov 1857 at Hampreston, Dorset, England. Her parents are Reuben and Elizabeth King.

familysearch.org has both of the above results. There are more, but I only selected the first two. Let me know if one of these look like the right ones.

Looking on Freebmd (UK site for all births/marriages/deaths registered after Sep qtr. 1837), there are 51 Mary Ann births registered for just 1857.  

Is there any family information from her marriage certificate which might help narrow down your search, or have you found when she emigrated from the UK?
