If you could share one story about your grandma, what would it be? In 2014 FamilySearch started a campaign called #MeetMyGrandma to nudge people worldwide to share stories of their grandmothers. The goal of this campaign was to gather 10,000 stories in 10 days, and since then, many grandma stories have been added to FamilySearch Memories.
