The two personal pronouns I and me are often used wrongly, usually in sentences in which I is being used with another noun. Here are some tips to help you get it right:

  • Use the pronoun I, along with other subjective pronouns such as we, he, she, you, and they, when the pronoun is the subject of a verb:

    He went to bed.

    We waited for the bus.

    Clare and I are going for a coffee.

    In the last example, the pronoun I, together with the proper noun Clare, forms the subject of the sentence, so you need to use I rather than me.

  • Use the pronoun me, along with other objective pronouns such as us, him, her, you, and them, when the pronoun is the object of a verb:

    Danny thanked them.

    The dog followed John and me to the door.

  • Use the pronoun me, along with other objective pronouns such as us, him, her, you, and them, when the pronoun is the object of a preposition:

    Rose spent the day with Jake and me.

    Me, together with Jake, forms the object of the preposition with, so you need to use the pronoun me rather than the pronoun I.

  • An easy way of making sure you’ve chosen the right pronoun is to see whether the sentence reads properly if you remove the additional pronoun like in your sentence:
    If you don't know whether to say I or me just remove my mother, my father:
    There is one member in my family that is only me

Use
I am going for a coffee.
Rose and I went for a coffee.
The dog followed me.
Rose spent the day with me.

Don't use
Me am going for a coffee.
Rose and me went for a coffee.
The dog followed I.
Rose spent the day with I.

Oxford dictionary

Regarding your sentence use:
There are 3 members in my family that is me, my father, and my mother.
Or
There are 3 members in my family that is my father, my mother and me.

Because if you use:
There is one member in my family that is only me
Or if you write the sentence like the following:
My family consists of my mother, my father, and me

    and if you are having trouble, make yourself the subject. I am going for coffee. 'Me' won't work. Rose and I are going -- 'me' is going -- nope. The dog followed me -- dog followed 'I' -- nope. – WRX Jun 3 '17 at 20:37
