Find Families in the Project Browser
The Project Browser shows a logical hierarchy for all views, schedules, sheets, families, groups, linked Revit models and other parts of the current project. As you expand and collapse each branch, lower-level items display.

In the lower-right corner of the window, the number of selected elements in the project displays.
Note: You can drag component families directly into your project from the Project Browser. If you want to edit a family listed in the Project Browser just-right click on the family header.
If at any time you've closed an interface element (e.g. the Properties Palette or the Project Browser), you can open them again through the User Interface button in the View tab of the Ribbon. You can also open them from the bottom of the right click menu.
