I like to use the Groups feature of Gmail to quickly send an email to a certain group of people that are generally always included on certain emails. For instance, I have a Family group so I can quickly email everyone in my family. This is really convenient, but it always puts all the addresses in the "To" field. I have other groups where I always want to CC certain people, while others should be in the "To" field. Is there a way to create a Group in Gmail where one or more of the addresses are automatically put in the "CC" field instead of the "To" field?

Contacts are just addresses and groups are just collections of contacts. Unless you write a plugin to read user defined fields from the contacts api, I don't believe that you would be able to selectively designation a contact as 'to' or 'cc'.
Otherwise, I would suggest creating two subgroups: one for the 'to's and another for the 'cc's. Remember that contacts can be members of multiple groups. So all of them can still be members of a 'Family' group.
Arcege is right, create two groups one for to and one for cc and to remember add to/cc as prefix. Like as you said for family make two separate groups toFamily and ccFamily and while mailing add accordingly.
Hope it helps.
