What effect did the trauma have on their life?
What is the legacy the trauma has introduced into the family line?
What effect has the trauma had on my family today?
How can I heal the trauma I inherited?
How can I heal the trauma the rest of my family has inherited?
How can I help the spirit of my ancestor heal, if that's needed?

If this were a story you were reading, which would you rather know first - who it happened to or how it was expressed in the first generation? I'm thinking how it was expressed could actually go after the effect it had on the person who experienced it.

Once we have the order of the positions set, then we can think about spread shapes.

If I understand correctly, I agree that how it was expressed could go after the affect it had on the person who experienced it. So(?):

It seems pertinent, but I'm not sure how to include it, that the querent should be specific about which side of the family they're asking about, maybe even going so far as to say which grandparents' line should be explored through the seeking before proceeding with the reading.
