The family boundaries might be quite complex. Considering the Klingon cross-cousin system it's possible that they consider tey' to be a part of the family and lor to not be. Okrand has supported this by noting that people are more close to their tey' than their lor.

But looking up the English "family" in Merriam-Webster I saw other definitions too, which could expand the "strict" meaning of the word to include cousins, aunts, etc. On the other hand, I don't know how Greek dictionaries define the word, so go figure.
