деды


Explanation:
Лучше двумя словами "дедушки и бабушки", но если есть ограничения по к-ву символов, тогда в крайнем случае "деды", если контекст позволяет

но иногда слово прадеды может употребляться обобщенно, бнзотносительно пола и точного родства:
напр. прадеды — предки, деды, прародители, праотцы, пращуры; отчичи и дедичи, предшествующие поколения https://dic.academic.ru/dic.nsf/efremova/223987/Прадеды
