A good source of information is the National Alopecia Areata Foundation. There is a genetic link no doubt but it is  not a given. I have a son that does not have it and both my xhusband and I did not have it, however his mother did have a form of it. She had hair but it was very thin. Also if there are a number of autoimmune conditions in your family perhaps chances increase. Again, I am not a doctor or a genetic expert but the National Alopecia Areata Foundation has materials on this topic. Hope that helps.
