The members of a family want to go on a picnic, But not all of them. Is it correct to say:
"Not all of them want to go on a picnic" ?

    If not all the members want to go, then your first sentence should not start with the members, but some members. In addition, either put a period (.) after picnic or uncapitalize but. And remove the space before the question mark. – user6951 Nov 7 '14 at 13:19

It is correct to say "Not all of them want to go on a picnic" so long as the antecedent of them is clear.
