I've read a couple comics about Poe's parents in the Rebellion, and they didn't have BB-8 then, so he's not a family droid as far as I can tell. Poe is incredibly close with him, though - do we know exactly when they met? And is this in a canon piece, like a comic or book?

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states that BB-8 was assigned to Poe Dameron four years before the Starkiller Incident, which "Star Wars: Galactic Atlas" dates to 34 ABY. Therefore, it could be found that BB-8 was assigned to Poe in 30 ABY.

Also, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states that BB-8 was manufactured five years before the Starkiller Incident, which "Star Wars: Galactic Atlas" dates to 34 ABY. Therefore, BB-8 was manufactured in 29 ABY.
