Genealogy and Family Info DB Design


Database Design Question

Is every individual a person? Or a Parent or a Child?

If every individual is a child, and can be a parent and can be a grandparent...

In fact every child could be a parent and grandparent and greatgrandparent... etc 

 Tables? Relations? Fields?

Relating the child (individual) to the parent and grandparent...

If a child has a child, the related parent and grandparent would be bumped to grandparent and greatgrandparent...

Thoughts? Examples? Help? Guidance?

Will be a IWP database when working correctly.

Thank you for your time
