Who is more important? Maternal grandmother or paternal grandmother?

    It depends on what you're trying to prove.  If you want to be Jewish, it's your maternal grandmother that counts.

    From just the perspective of doing genealogy, they are equally important.

    Genetic importance? They are of equal importance. 

    Socially? It depends on your family structure.

    Important in terms of what?

    Genetically they are equal.  Historically my maternal grandmother never voted because she heard in church it was sinful for women to judge men.  My paternal grandmother was a leading suffragette.  Unfortunately they never lived within a thousand miles of one another and never met, which would have been very interesting.

    Without either of them you would not exist, both are a equal 'importance' for genealogy research

    Neither.  Both are equally part of your whole family's history.

    In terms of Genealogy, they are both equally part of the story.
