I suggest using the normal channels of Advice and Regional for questions and comments. I also suggest turning on kinship so you can see the peoples names and what kinship they belong to. Ask them about their kinship. Ask everyone with a different kinship about their kin. Watch and wait and when you see a good kinship with people who are respectful to others - that's the one you want to try out. Approach a kin member and ask how to join.
I think if you ask lots of questions and are observant you will find what you want and have a great time in game making friends and finding people to do things with you. You will find more chatter in busy hubs such as Bree.
