My understanding has always been that kith refers to close friends or acquaintances, whereas kin refers to family and relatives.

Otherwise, the term kith and kin would almost be a tautology... :unsure2:

Of course, I may be wrong :yes:

Kith has had many historical meanings. Given that,  perceptions of redundancy should be tempered.
