    What is the plural of 'kin'?

    As we all know, kin means a family member. I would like to know if there is a plural version of 'kin'. Is it 'kins'?
    Thanks alot for the help. (:

    It's just kin.
    I went to the family reunion to see my kin. I got some kin from there.

    You can also say "kin folk." Realize that in the U.S., this will brand you as a Southerner.
