Hi,

Is there a particular word for "clan" in the Punjab area, meaning family in the broad sense of it (maybe with related by ancestry)? Roman alphabet.
Thanks

    The first thing that would have come to my mind is خاندان / xaandaan / ਖਾਨਦਾਨ, but I am not an authority at all...

    No, I would say a "Tabbar" refers to a family and not to a clan. When one is a "jaTT" etc, that is not one's "Tabbar".
