I am new to c++ and am having a hard time with an assignment to write program to build and display a family tree using classes to hold the data for each person and pointers to the people associated with each person.
the data input for each person includes a name with a number such as (dan1), the number should be treated seperate from the name, birthdate, marital status (M or S), if the marital status is M then a spouse name and spouse birthdate, followed by a variable for the number of children and a possible deathdate.A X will signify the end of the line/input.
After the input of people there the word QUIT following that there will be a list of names to search the input for and then print name (birthdate) S or M if M spouse, spouse birthdate, children, their birthdates, deathdate (can only have a death date for the 1st person)

right now I am trying to organize my classes and make loops to sort through the input in order to know what comes next. I think I might need something the askValues function, I have been looking for tutorials but I have no idea if I'm going in the right direction. Any suggestions or corrections would be much apperciated!!
