I saw this sentence. It "feels" wrong, but I can't put my finger on why.

  1. Thanks for being part of the family and to help build a network.

I feel that it should be:

  1. Thanks for being part of the family and helping (to?) build a network.

Or even:

  1. Thanks for being part of the family and helping in building a network.

Am I correct, or am I being too pedantic?

It doesn't just feel wrong. It is wrong.

Individual parts of such sentences should work on their own. This is not the case here:

"Thanks to help build a network." is incorrect and, as you said, should be "Thanks for helping build a network". Your other suggestions are also correct.
