    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.

  2. Cindy De La Hoz:

    She was a fatherless child, her birth father would not marry her mother … He allowed [ Sophia ] to use his last name, but everyone in town knew she was illegitimate. She was made fun of for that.

When air raids would strike the town, she and her family would run for over and had to go in hiding … There was disease, rodents … Because they had such scarcity of food, she was very, very thin. That’s how she gained her nickname in school, Toothpick.
