Family Boidae (note: some authors break this into Boidae and Pythonidae, others consider these two to be subfamilies):
No, Boidae is split into the sub-families of "Boinae" and "Pythoninae". Different spellings, and that's why you couldn't find it Ken.

There are also the Tropidophiidae (Dwarf boas) and Boylerriidae (Mascarene boas) families.

This stuff even confuses the scientists who make the classifications! That's why they change from time to time.

As you can see, I already included both Bolyeriidae and Tropidophiidae families.

This occurs when an animal produces eggs that hatch within the mother's body (without obtaining nourishment from it), and the young are born live. Many, many reptiles exhibit ovovivparity.

There are lots of pictures chronicling the birth of young from an ovoviviparous reptile, just do some searching on the web.

Common Garter Snakes do not lay eggs, they are ovoviviparous.

As mentioned, one of the hallmark and defining characteristics of boas is that most do not lay eggs, they are ovoviviparous.
