    我想翻译这样一个题目: 西周初期的召公世系。我想到了好几个词,比如:family three, pedigree, line of descendant等。但是我发现有个问题:这几个词表达的世系好像都是说现今的某人某家的祖先的。我这篇文章里面,却正好相反,说的是召公的后代可以分为几支(而且,也只是在西周初年的分支,再朝后就不述及了)。所以,想请教教大家,有没有合适的词汇或合适的表达来传达这个意思。先行谢过了。

    How about "clan"?

    Hi. I think "line of descendants/offspring" may suit your purpose.
