I suspect you will, indeed, have to get birth certificates for your ancestors - the French just LOVE stacks of paper like this. (But the good news is that marriages are recorded in the birth records, so you may be spared getting separate marriage certificates.) You'll need names, dates of birth and the town in which they were born, since the birth records are kept by the mairie.

Oh, and you'll also need to demonstrate that you can speak, read and write French. Your best sources of information will probably be either the Service Public website Accueil Particuliers - Service-public.fr and the links on the pages for French nationality, or the French pages of your local consulate's website.
Cheers,
Bev
