Noah's family details are recorded in Genesis 6:10 and also 9:18. In the 10th chapter of Genesis, is given the generations of his sons, There maybe something more written in the other books, but I do not think so. Noah had 3 sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.

Noah had three sons Shem, Ham and Japheth. Along with his wife and the wives of his three sons, it was these eight who were saved in the flood.

I could add how each son was the forefather of differing nations, how through
Shem we get Semite, the Jews..etc. But this this is for another question.

Noah had three children. This can found in GEN 6:9-10 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God. And Noah had three sons, Ham, Japheth and Shem.

Noah, his three sons and their wives, Noah's wife were the eight persons who survived the flood and the sons are the progenitors of mankind after the flood that wiped out the first world. GEN 7:13. 

From the three sons of Noah the generation of the present world emanated. GEN 9:18-19. A careful study will lead you to know who your specific forefather is after the flood since there are only three of them.
