From Hutchinson, Minnesota, USA:
My seven year daughter, who has had diabetes since the age of one, was just diagnosed with celiac disease via intestinal biopsy. Should my husband, my son, and I be tested for celiac
There probably is a minor increased risk for celiac disease in the other members of your immediate family, but I do not know if it is enough to warrant screening (unless others are having more obvious symptoms). I bet that your gastroenterologist would have better statistics for you.
