I think febrile seizures do sometimes run in families. I also think I have read those prone to febrile seizures have a higher chance of developing non-febrile seizures.
Do the seizures only occur with fevers?
Here is a link to an online parents support group for kids with epilepsy, part of the epilepsy foundation:

Many very informed parents there.
