By the common meaning of the word ancestor, it is not uncommon for
an offspring and an ancestor to be alive simultaneously.  For example,
my father, myself, my two sons.  The latter three people having contemporaneous
ancestors.  I think that tdib is using a specialized meaning of the term
ancestor.  Others in the present discussion are not.
