A family association or family organization is an organization formed by people who share a common ancestor or surname. They join together for a variety of purposes, including exchanging genealogical information, sharing current news about family members, having reunions, and promoting family pride and unity among living descendants.
The Mekkattukulam family referred in this narration is that family rooted at Puttekkara and Mundur areas in Thrissur district. The history of this family at Mundur starts from around A.D.1725. This family is believed to have migrated to Mundur from Porkkalam near Kunnamkulam at about that year. The family that migrated from Porkkalam had to choose such an option owing to the segregation of Christian groups around Porkkalam and Kunnamkulam areas in 18th century as an after effect of the'Koonan Kurisu Sathyam' which was a vow made by some traditional Chaldean Syrian Catholic Christians not to submit to the many changes implemented by Portuguese Catholic missionaries in Kerala in the 16th and 17th centuries.View More
