Pitra Dosh is the suffering caused to the descendants due to the ancestors. If the shraddha of the ancestors has not been performed by proper rituals. Then the soul of our ancestors does not attain peace. Or due the bad deeds of any of the ancestors the family got cursed and the next generation has to suffer that curse.
Pitra Dosh can be determined by your birth horoscope. If there is one of the two planets Rahu-Ketu along with Sun or Moon in your horoscope; then it is called Pitra Dosh. This Dosh can occur up to the 7th generation.
