I'm not really sure that is "defined" in any detailed way. I suppose it means something like curves derived from a common source exhibiting some type of shared behaviour. Contours? Conics? Spirals? That sort of thing.

One family of curves is the set of hyperbolas xy = a. Another family of curves is the set of hyperbolas x^2 - y^2 = b, where a and b run through the real numbers.

True but you can take all the conic curves together as one family.
