When listing addresses where I resided on the N400 form, do I need to list address which I have stayed in when I traveled outside the US with my green card. For example, I traveled for about two month to my country and stayed at my families house? Do I need to list that address? Or Do i only list US address which I have lived in?
Only US addresses.

Did you give up your apartment in the US when you traveled to see family? If you kept your US home address, you don't have to list the addresses you stayed at during your travels. USCIS will see that you were out of the country temporarily since you have to list your trips in another section of N-400.
On the other hand, if you gave up your U.S. apartment before you went abroad and rented a new place upon your return, you should list the address abroad to fill the gap.
There is no penalty for placing all information in your application. If you were overseas, it would not hurt to place that information. I have never seen an issue with an application where a person did not place the information down for their overseas trips, but if you wish to err on the side of caution, you may place this information. However, just note this place was not a permanent address, so you may confuse an officer by including that information.
