English Synonyms and Antonyms, by James Champlin Fernald

  1. kin

    Kind is broader than kin, denoting the most general relationship, as of the whole human species in mankind, humankind, etc.; kin and kindred denote direct relationship that can be traced through either blood or marriage, preferably the former; either of these words may signify collectively all persons of the same blood or members of the same family, relatives or relations. Affinity is relationship by marriage, consanguinity is relationship by blood. There are no true antonyms of kin or kindred, except those made by negatives, since strangers, aliens, foreigners, and foes may still be kin or kindred.

    Synonyms:
    affinity, alliance, birth, blood, consanguinity, descent, family, kind, kindred, race, relationship
