Excerpt from California Kinship Systems
The following systems of relationship designation were collected at intervals during the last fifteen years, but mostly before 1908, in the course of various field studies of the California Indians. They are in most cases unsupported by... genealogies or concrete records; probably the majority of the lists are not wholly exhaustive; and in a few instances the data may not be entirely correct. I have long hesitated to publish this material. But it happens to represent all ethnic provinces and parts of the state, except the northeastern corner, and therefore permits of distributional inferences; and it furnishes a basis for the consideration of certain theoretical problems; in addition to which, information on kinship in California has become a need in wider comparative studies. I therefore present the data, trusting that they will be of service in spite of their imperfections.
