The extended family means, simply, of the extended family. There is a term in English that means more or less the same thing. It refers not only to your closest family (parents and siblings), but for the rest of his family: his aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, all who are related by blood, but not as close to you as your nuclear family. Sometimes, some of these people live with you and your family in the same house, which is quite normal in many Hispanic countries.
