KCHR attempts to build an archive on Malayali family histories and biographies to enrich its resource centre. We invite you to participate in the venture by donating family histories, autobiographies, souvenirs, books, monographs, granthavarees, nalvazhees, aadhaarams, or any other relevant documents. We look forward to your voluntary involvement in this effort to facilitate research and preserve Malayali roots.


  • The donor's contributions would remain his/her property. The donors or their heirs can reclaim the contributions on producing the original receipt issued by KCHR. All future research references will acknowledge their generous gesture.
  • KCHR will take necessary steps to scientifically preserve all contributions. If the KCHR publication committee finds the contribution to be outstanding it gains special recognition.

For donating rare books and family histories, contact  director@keralahistory.ac.in
