Genetic memory is a genetic trait where creatures are able to pass on their memory to their offspring. Goa'uld Queens are capable of passing on their memory to their offspring voluntarily. Because of this, the Goa'uld are born with the complete memory of their lineage, making them immediately intelligent—and also ego-maniacal and evil. (SG1: "The Enemy Within", "Cure")
As seen with a harcesis the Goa'uld's genetic memory can also be used to pass on their memory to any human children that a host may have. In the stargate SG-1 episode prototype, Khalek, the "son" of Anubis says that he can see the memories of his ancestors "as if he was there".
