How to visualize a small family tree

Post

     Hello,

     I'm new to FileMaker and have limited programing exprience.  I'm unsure if I'm addressing this problem completely wrong.  Please help. 

     Is there any way to visualize a small family tree? 

     Here is my problem:  I have a Patient with X disease.  I need to ask the patient about thier family with X disease.  Family includes spouse, Siblings, children, parents, aunts/Uncles, Cousins, and grandparents.  Then I need to make a small family tree highlighting family members with X disease. 

     Here is my database structure:

     Individual table (IndividualID, dateOfBirth, dateOfDeath, Disease)

     Role table (roleCode, roleDescription)

     From that I would  like a tree to be displayed. Is this possible in FileMaker? 

     I hope this makes sense.  I had a hard time discribing it. 

     Thanks for your help.

     Samantha
