My interest in researching family history helped me create this book with the intention of preserving and communicating information about our family.

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to my family for generously sharing their information in time to complete this task successfully.

I am grateful to everyone who hosted me during the data collection process. I would like to thank my immediate family members; both in Hyderabad and Kerala, especially those who arranged messages from the Metropolitan Archbishop Mar George Njarlakatt, Tellicherry, Diocese Bishop, Calicut, Rev Varghese Chakalakal and Sr Leena SH.  Special thanks to my daughter Chris G Kollian, and nieces, Dian William, Deborah William and Denise William for taking time out of their busy schedule to review this book.

Last but not the least; I would like to thank my husband, Glen Kollian and our daughter Chris for their support and encouragement to embark on this project.

I was very happy and excited to interact with you all during this process.  For some, it was an interaction after 40 years. Indeed it was a great feeling! I wish everyone all the best, good health, and the youngsters, a bright career and a happy and very fruitful life. Once again, thank you everyone; all who kept me in your prayers and my friends for their support for the successful completion of this project.

Limitations

 Due to lack of resources, time and data, the book will begin from the journey of Late Kudakkachira Joseph (1). With all my limitations, I have tried my best to contact members personally and gathered the existing data.  Some could not share photos due to their personal limitations. It has been a marathon effort of one month and I enjoyed every bit of it. Hope the next generation will take it forward here.

Lineage – Structure

This book takes you through the entire family tree of Kudakkachira, starting from Joseph Kudakkachira (Kunjappan) and his children, grandchildren, till the 7th generation. The eldest in the family – Joseph Kudakkachira (Kunjappan) is mentioned as 1 and his children as 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, and so on as per the seniority. The third generation of each family is mentioned as 1.1.1, 1.2.1, and so on.
