Yep. Literally members of the family (famili-an-o-j)

I got a tooltip that says:

'familianoj' = 'family members'; 'parencoj' = 'relatives'.

Don't they mean the same thing?

Only sort of. I would say that "parencoj" includes more distant relations and has less of an emphasis on the structure.

Could parencoj be used for biological relatives that one doesnt count as heart family? I have relatives that i do not accept as family, and non relatives that are family to me.

Why wasnt relatives accepted?

https://www.duolingo.com/drownloader

It didn't accept "relatives" from me, which I reported. Or does "familiano" imply immediate family?

Yes.

Esperanto is a mind-blower. Isn't it!

Is there a way to specify bioligical family vs adoptive or step family? My son is adopted, but has bio siblings, that we call his family, but sometimes its nice to differentiate.

The "correct" answer has now been amended to 'family', which to me suggests 'familiano.' 'Familianoj' is plural and, rather than just agreeing with the previous nouns, leads me to think 'families'; critique?

"Family" is "familio".
"Familiano" is "family member".

Then the correction is wrong - it told me I should have said 'family' (not as above) but thank you for your response.

'Parents and siblings are relatives.' should be accepted as well.
