Famillial ALS

My Father has had this terrible disease for two years, and he is copping well. All the family help out as my mother is on also on Dialysis.
With the advent of the Internet I have managed to research as much as I want about ALS for my father, however I do have an underlying concern for my Brother, our young families, and myself. Their is no incidents of the disease in the family, however the Familial strain has to start somewhere. Does anyone know what percentage of ALS sufferers are new familial start-ups?
Thanks in anticipation of a response.
