Hi there,family means everything to our family. I married into a Palestinian family and have two young boys but want to learn more about where they come from so I can teach them about their heritage. If anyone can suggest books which might help, please do. Our surname is Khourshid and also Ansari from my husbands side. Both are big Palestinian families. Any help would be very much appreciated.
