Meet My Grandma - Tell Your Grandmother's Story

By Mormon.org
A young girl stands smiling with her grandma on a front porch.

My grandma was the best at . . .

Whether it is a story of what your grandmother was amazing at, an amazing experience she had and has relayed to you, or something else that just really impresses you about your grandma, now is the time to share. Each of us has a fascinating family history.

Follow the #meetmygrandma hashtag and see encouragement for all families to share their personal perspectives of what makes their grandmothers so special to them. These stories, along with those contributed by other family members and relatives and any photos and digital artifacts submitted, are saved to a dynamic online profile dedicated specifically to their grandma.

You can begin to share your stories September 20–30, but this isn’t something with a deadline. You can do it whenever! During these 10 days, FamilySearch.org hopes to reach 10,000 stories. The free mobile app (iOS only) even allows you to record and post video of your grandmothers online!

Participating in the campaign is simple. Simply sign in to your FamilySearch.org account to share, or download the mobile Memories app. If you don’t have an account, join for free here. Make sure to use the campaign hashtag #meetmygrandma as you share your stories and pictures on social media.

Watch the video below to see what others have shared about their grandmothers.
