Families in the former Liliaceae

I have been informed that there is no longer a family Alliaceae, and 
that genera formerly in that split of the once-upon-a-time Liliaceae 
are now in the Amaryllidaceae. Is this currently correct?

Alliaceae made sense to me from the morphological viewpoint, but the 
author of a book I reviewed online criticized me for thinking it had 
been omitted from her list of families as a typographical error.
