[R] Next step after multiple GoF tests

This may be a bit off topic so feel free to flame me ... my defence is
that I am using R.

I have data with case counts per family. I arrange the data in a simple
table of frequency classes (e.g. how many families with 0 cases, how
many with 1 case, &c.) and then GoF to Poisson and negative binomial. I
treat each family as a natural sampling unit but families are of
different size. I can do the above analysis for each family size but
would like to pool the results. Which way forward ... I am guessing that
I could use some extension of Mantel-Haenszel methods or maybe a GLM.
Any pointers gratefully received.
