My pregnancy terminated due to anomaly at 22 weeks, after that I did blood test which came out positive for CMV. THIS was my 2nd pregnancy and all other test was normal. Is it necessary to screen other members of the family for cmv.

No it is not mandatory for your family.
It is better to get clear of it.
CMV is spread by direct contact of body fluids, such as saliva, blood, urine, semen, vaginal fluids, and breast milk. Thus breastfeeding, blood transfusions, organ transplants, and sexual contact are possible modes of transmission. So those who can be exposed to such, yes do test.
