    Clear me out: Why cannot your family members connect to the original Wi-Fi? Why do you have to be a medium?

No. WiFi hotspot uses the WiFi radio, and so cannot be used for both tethering and WiFi reception at the same time. You would need 2 WiFi radios for that on your device, which I don't think any device has. You will be better off buying a router.
