Cloud Computing offers computing as a service on demand. It doesn't provide services only to business, industries and organization. Apart from the commercial usage cloud can be utilized by individuals for domestic purposes. Such a cloud is known as family cloud. This paper speaks about the cloud services that are useful to collaborate members of a family with themselves and also with their relatives and friends. A brief discussion on various cloud services suitable for families is done. The service providers and website address of the family cloud services are tabulated. This paper also justify that cloud helps families to collaborate on budget, grocery shopping, to-do lists and other schedules.
