Best Answer

This depends on the context.

The word 'which' applies to the object of a sentence. If starting a sentence, it is generally more proper to use "A family that" instead.

Examples:

A family that prays together stays together.

I would like a family which eats meals together.

Remember it this way: Him and Whom both end in 'm'. If it is correct to use 'him' then it is correct to use 'whom'.

Direct Object:

  • I saw HIM
  • I saw the family WHOM I lived with.
Indirect Object:
  • I gave it to HIM.
  • I gave it to the family WHOM I lived with.
Subject:
  • HE in invited me to eat.
  • The family WHO I lived with invited me to eat.
