The kick-off-meeting of our project has taken place from the 7th until 9th October 2004 at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle. More than 30 scientists from 9 countries discussed fundamental ideas, the research strategy, aspects of fieldwork, historical methods and the organisation of further work. In a brave and enthusiastic way they tested the Kinship Network Questionnaire (KNQ) and exchanged opinions about many aspects of the research design. But there was also time to become acquainted with each other and for informal conversation. These three days proved to be a very productive time for the project, identifying several ways in which the plans for the following research can be enhanced.

»   17th - 18th July 2004 - KASS working group meeting in Halle.
»   01th Mai 2004 - Start of the project.
