Not Parkinson's: There are a host of poorly-understood facial reflexes that happen in response to different stimuli, often on the face. They vary considerably from person to person. That this is familial is interesting. Parkinson's doesn't present this way.

Fnerve irritation: This can be from bad teeth or sinus inflammation. You should see your dentist anf pcp first. It can also be from other neurokogicak problems not parkinson's.
