i'm new to perl so this is hopefully simple.  i keep getting the following error:

syntax error at /home/dwcronin/programs/ex4_1 line 7, near "$family_name{"
Execution of /home/dwcronin/programs/ex4_1 aborted due to compilation errors.

specifically. i'm trying to learn hashes by following the o'reilly book 'learning perl" by randal schwartz.
