Jacob Thomas Manakalathil is running an interesting project on Family Tree DNA.
The legend, and belief of some, is that Syrian Christians of Kerala, started with the arrival of St. Thomas on the Malabar Coast in AD 52 and the establishment of eight churches by him. But, there is more to the story and we decided to ask Jacob Thomas Manakalathil about his project and the findings so far.
What is the purpose of this testing? When did you start?
