How do we get over a family's death and it was a family member you never meet?

I guess it depends on how you feel. When someone in my family I didn't know died, I felt sad but got over it fairly quickly since I did not have a real emotional attachment. If you're feeling bad, I would take a moment to think about that person (or pray if you're religious), but I would mostly try to focus on happy things. Don't stay cooped up in the house, try to stay active.

But i feel like he is dead because of me my parents cry and my sister crys over him and since i never knew him i feel like it was my fault

Hon, it is not possible for it to be your fault simply because you didn't know him. I'm no expert, but I think you may be feeling guilty because you see people that you care about grieving, but since you didn't know him, you don't feel as strong an emotional connection. You're trying to grieve, but you don't know how to handle it, so it's transferring into guilt. I think my recommendation would stay the same as my above answer. Just keep reminding yourself that it was in no way your fault. You will probably begin to feel better as your family recovers; if not, don't hesitate to seek counseling, or try to talk it out with someone.

First, you need to seek counseling immediately. Try and talk to family members or close friends to let go of the emotions. You should also find activities that will keep your mind occupied.
