Hello @dedarts and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. The genetic link you have shared to the 7 people in your family all having Parkinson's seems noteworthy. I can see why you are curious and wanting to connect with others who may be able to shed some light on what they have seen in their own families.

Members like @hopeful33250 @sherrieshe @oldsalt1947 @ggopher @farmerleebs @pspt @edschickel @johnjames and more may be able to share with you any genetic link they might have in their own families, if any.

While we wait for others to join the conversation, I did want to share these resources with you as well.

Can I ask what concerns you or has you most interested about this trend in your family?
