Ive done that without any problems but ive been giving another challenge where I have to improve the previous program by adding a choice that lets the user enter a name and get back a grandfather. The program should still only use one dictionary of father-son pairs and finally I have to make sure to include several generations in your dictionary so that a match can be found. Im not sure I fully understand the task because surely its only possible to have one key and one value per pair but the challenge seems to want me to have a key (for the father), a value (for the son) and then something else (for the grandfather). Is this actually possible? Or am I just misinterpreting the challenge?

Take a look at this 
http://www.daniweb.com/software-development/python/code/217019 and think 
about it in relation to the replies you've already had.
