First you bind the GridView with database. if you not know how to bind than check the following tutorial:

Now add the DropDownList and fill it with all alphabets.

After that add another GridView. And on the selected index changed event of the DropDownList write following code:

DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        dt.Columns.Add("ID");
        dt.Columns.Add("Name");
        dt.Columns.Add("Father");
        int count = 0;
        for (int i = 0; i < GridView1.Rows.Count; i++)
        {
            if (GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[1].Text.StartsWith(DropDownList1.SelectedItem.Text.ToLower()))
            {
                DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
                dr["ID"] = GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[0].Text;
                dr["Name"] = GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[1].Text;
                dr["Father"] = GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[2].Text;
                dt.Rows.Add(dr);
                count++;
            }
        }
        if (count == 0)
        {
            Response.Write("No Record Found.....!");
            GridView1.Visible = true;
            GridView2.Visible = false;
        }
        else
        {
            GridView1.Visible = false;
            GridView2.Visible = true;
            GridView2.DataSource = dt;
            GridView2.DataBind();
        }

Now run the project and select the item from the DropDownList.
