I need to find out what the average american family of 5 has in savings...any suggestions on where to find that info?
This is a question that could easily be answered by the Federal Reserve's Survey of Consumer Finance. (The survey is a publically available micro-data file) Unfortunately, I do not know if your particular desired statistic has been tabulated and published by the Fed/SCF. I did not find anything in my five minutes of google searching. I suggest you get on the Federal Reserve's web site and start searching from there.
