Not sure .. how I got the invite to join the group. J-M158.2. and M6 Interested in any information that is out there.

With 176 members, this has group has enough statistical strength to answer some interesting historical questions. First suggestion, upload your data to see Benny Parapatt's suggestion below. Look up your ethnic admixture. You'll learn a lot. Individual results are far less important than the group results. What I notice is a much higher percentage of genes from the Caucuses and West Asia. Let me just say it here- we're all nadans and Indians but I think we will find that a bunch of people arrived on Travancore shore with worship in Syriac as early as 8th century. Collectively those "SNPS" are likely to be floating around in us Or not. If "higher percentage of genes from the Caucuses and West Asia" coalesce to a few individuals- that is new information and worth a try.

Benny, - you pointed out that Dr. Mini's study is of poor quality- I accept that- primarily because I am unable to judge. I think you likely have what it takes to aggregate some information this group possesses. Let me just put it out there. Kerala Syrian Christians are genetically a disparate group - but- NO more than Ashkenazi Jews. Case in point is- on FTDNA there are as many Ashkenazi jews within my Y DNA group as from Syrian Christians - if not more- and not J2. The question is whether SNP testing is likely to point to small group of people who had a " founding effect" on essentially Indian origin mitochondrial DNA- Essentially- me travelled for trade or otherwise and had children with women who were already there

I didn't understand what you where trying to say .

Actually, it is a question. Assuming that a small number of people travelled to Kerala coast several hundred years ago over a long period and had children with local women and founded a new society 1) Can our collective SNP analysis coalesce to recreate the origin of those migrants? 2) Is one able to put a tentative time period as to when that happened? Admittedly, these Y SNPs could be quite diverse

The raw data is much more useful than the myorigins breakup . You can upload that to gedmatch site( ) and use various tools there . It can also be useful for the relative finder but the relationship is somewhat overestimated ie the 2nd-4th cousin will probably mean 4th cousin - 6th cousin and like that . The gedmatch relative finder seems more realistic than ftdna's

Benny- that is fascinating bit of information!

Now, I am on to a potentially a controversial subject- so please bear with me. Assuming apostolic beginning of Syrian Christian community - the question is whether there were significant Syriac Christian migrants to Kerala - well before the 15th century- and that should be collectively visible in this group. May well have been a few - that too should be visible- collectively. IMO - far more useful for history than individual results because by the 4th generation- chances are that you share 1% DNA of your great grand father

For all the R1a guys out here you can make use of Z93 snp pack available for $99

Benny, what does that give you - I'm R2 ( R- M124)

Z93 SNP pack is only useful for R1a members to know which subgroup of R1a belong to . R2 is in different branch . You can opt for such SNP pack under R2 or even better products offered by other companies only if you are more interested in knowing deep history of your paternal line and spare amount to spend because even if you take the test you may not know much as of now as indian lineages are less well studied but may be more useful in future .

Dears, Good time to buy some test and identify your final subclades. I know, at least for R1a(s), there a depth of markers that NatGeo's Geno doesn't test. FYI, We identified some very-rarely-tested markers (Y40) within our group recently.

I got 5%, but only a quarter of my ancestors were Nasrani.

Is anyone else here of the M2a'b haplogroup? A little confused as to what that means!

My family is Marthoma originally from Chengannur . Family name is Parapatt . I have tested through natgeno 2.0 and found my ydna to be R1a-L657 .later tested for its subgroup Y7 through ftdna .
