Study finds PTSD effects may linger in body chemistry of next generation
There appears to be scant connection between my interest in genealogy and material on trauma(such as that caused by war, genocide and even perhaps narcisssistic abuse). However research is beginning to bear out the idea that trauma may not only have consequences for those directly affected. It is possible that we may perhaps witness its effects in future generations (even in those who have no personal experience of a particular traumatic event directly) and that our own lives may have been impacted by past traumas we may know little or nothing about.
