Help! Can my Father & Mother be my eighth cousins?

Help! Can my Father & Mother be my eighth cousins?

Working with MacFamily Tree and Ancestry.com - made some updates, and suddenly my Father, Mother, Brother & Sister have become my 9th cousins, my Father is also my 8th Cousin once removed up and 2x removed up, etc, etc. I'm assuming I fat fingered something, but this is bending my brain to figure out. Any helpful suggestions out there? Thank you!

I have the same type of connections in my tree - I can explain this as I have a first cousin marriage that does throw up some strange connections

eighth cousins is quite a distant relationship - I know of at least two occasions when my forebears married their second cousins - quite common before the days of easy travel and a good way to keep money in the family!
