Sql Query using the IN clause..

I have a table.. we'll call Family.
In the table I have these records

XTYPE  ID    Nme      OtherStuff
---- -----  -------   --------------
 MST  01    Clan1      bla bla bla
 SON  01    Clan1       bla XXX YYY
 OTH  01    Clan1      ZZZ sdfafaf
 MST  02    Clan2      asdfafafaf
 OTH  02    Clan2       a2334141414
 MST  03    Clan3      jwj3j3j3j3j3
 SON  03    Clan3      uuuu bbbb cccc


What I am trying to accomplish is this:
I want to get all the "othestuff" data fields (there are really
more than just one) for each MST based upon the presnt of the 'SON'
entry.

So eventuly my query would return
 MST  01    Clan1      bla bla bla
 MST  03    Clan3      jwj3j3j3j3j3

because of the presence of the SON entry.

How can I code this in SQL?  I tried doing it with a

Select * From Faimly
Where XTYPE IN(Select * From Family Where XTYPE='SON')  

But that didn't return the expected results.

Close...

Select * From Family
Where ID IN(Select ID From Family Where XTYPE='SON')  
AND XTYPE='MST'

It's the ID values that are shared between the 'MST' and 'SON' records.

This assumes you are trying to return the 'MST' records that have a 'SON' record that shares the same ID value, which is what I understand you want to do.

;with family

SELECT * FROM #family WHERE ID IN (SELECT ID FROM family) AND XTYPE = 'SON'

No points please.
Just want to report an error in sarabhai's solution. He swapped 'MST' with 'SON' so the correct should be:
;with family 
 AS
 (
 SELECT * FROM #Family WHERE XTYPE = 'SON'
 )
 SELECT * FROM #family WHERE ID IN (SELECT ID FROM family) AND XTYPE = 'MST'

I accepted the first one, because it was a basic flaw in my original query.
