Hi Buzzicles,

Parkinsons UK do a publication. Go to the home page top left - publications - a-z list "Inherited Parkinson's and genetic testing" Also, if you google LRRK2 gene which was the first gene associated with hereditary PD which I believe was first discovered by studying an Italian family whose extended family contained many PWP's, you will find loads of stuff.

Here's an article on the gene mutations associated with PD. It's technical but very exhaustive and up to date:
