How Many People With PD Also Have Family Members With PD?

My brother had Parkinson's and just passed away last month, he had it for at least 10 years or so. I have had it for 5 already, I think my mother may have had it but wouldn't be tested for anything, she was so shakey she could not sign checks for the last several years of her life, I had to take it over. Some cousins have PD also.

This is the question I have been waiting to find! Granddad had "creeping paralysis" which I finally read is PD, he died in his 70's pampered to death by Grandma! What reeeellly concerns me is our 4 children. They all have tremors but could be Essential tremors from their dad's family. But I "suspect" him to also have PD: where does that leave our children? One has lessened ability to smell, anxiety is high on the list, memory is a real problem with one and ALSO her 8 yr old!; stability, pain - I am VERY concerned, some days bordering on worry.
