As for those who have been, or will be, raised to be Pagan, they would be extremely likely to encounter huge differences between their Pagan path and the Pagan path of another family.
You raise an interesting issue. Nowadays it looks like Paganism is just an assembly of a couple of minority religions/paths, some related to each other, some not. I wonder if in the next decades when there's (hopefully) more acceptance of those Pagan religions/paths if the 'Pagan community' will somewhat break up into different sections.

So maybe if someone grows up in an Asatru family he/she will consider him/herself Asatru and not member of a 'Pagan community' in the first place. Thus will there s/he look into other Pagan paths or interact with them?

Could also depend of how open or eclectic a path or family tradition is and how many other paths are related to it. (Like Wicca could be closer related to other paths of witchcraft in some aspects than Asatru to other polytheist recon religions - I hope adherents correct me if I'm wrong.)
