There isn't a standard address atribute for a family because GEDCOM doesn't
have one. You can, however, add a custom attribute to the family.
Before you do so you might want to consider how useful it would be. The
individuals that make up the family vary over time, and tracking the
movements of an individual would be much more difficult if his/her residence
information is against the family.
But it's your choice. FH is flexible enough to work either way, dpending on
what you want to achieve.

Subject: [FHU] Resident attribute for family
A question - if I want to create the record of an address for
a family, how can I do this as the Resident attribute only
seems to be available for individuals. It makes sense to me
that it should be there for families as the whole family will
be living at a given address at a point in time.
