    I am *assuming* you all are sharing an iCloud ID. Anyway, there are third-party apps that claim to remove duplicate contact entries, but I've never used any of them. If you have more than one email account configured on your device(s), disable sync of the associated contacts on all accounts except your primary account. That alone will remove duplicates, especially if the email account contain the same contact listing.

    1. If you and your family are sharing the iCloud account then I would recommend doing something like this: Go to icloud.com and then contacts. Create a group for each of you and then move the contacts accordingly. When you create a new contact on the iPhone you will still have to manually go and change the groups. The best part is that the same contact can be in multiple groups

    2. If you start deleting the contacts and the iCloud account is shared all the devices synced with the iCloud will loose the contact

    3. You can select multiple contacts and delete them through the iCloud account (icloud.com). You can also select multiple contacts to move between groups

    Hope this helps...
