Chapter Summary

This appendix aims to clarify the relationship and status terms that appear in the 1958 Kyirong household register of government taxpayers. The terms in the tables presented in the appendix can be used to reconstruct precise relationships within households, and in addition contain many clues about the structure of Kyirong society. Many of the relationship and status terms found in this document, such as those that designate an individual's marital status, probably translate across administrative boundaries in Tibet. Other terms are distinct reflections of local culture in Kyirong, such as shag mo and dbu mdzad. Household registers from other districts in Tibet undoubtedly also contain idiosyncratic references to local culture.

Keywords: 1958 Kyirong household register; government taxpayers; local culture; marital status; Tibet
