My parents were born the 40's and the 50's and they told me stories (reality) to how things used to be and when the TV came out and how the world reacted to rock and roll music, the wars and so on.
Many young kids ask me questions when i tell them that am born in iraq and raised till i was 20 till i moved to sweden that is it just desert and sand with camels there? Which it cracks me up because they have no idea how things look like in west asia (as known middle east) and most of them have seen the walt disney Aladdin movie and they imagine that's how it really looks like.

One nephew had a project about family history, but it was more about the name... nothing about the specific history.
