In my research I have found where a man fathered children with his daughter... how does anyone else handle this in their entries in the database?  I could add the parent with the child as the father of the new children... but is that the right approach?  Do I do a direct add or do I do a footnote?  Any general guidance on this would be greatly appreciated.

Dennis I would show the children with the real father and his daughter as the parents.Then put a special note in the father, daughter and each child's notes what happened so there is no confusion for people in future where they may feel a mistake had been made.
