      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
