I am searching for my father’s roots in Palestine. He died in 2007, and I have not been able to find any information on his family. His name is Elias Sousan

Hi Maryam,
Check the genealogy book by Azeez Shaheen. You may be able to find the “hamouleh” (tribe) of the Sousan Family there. Also, if you know the town where the family is from, you should be able to learn more about your lineage from the elders who hopefully still live there. Good luck.
