Find any mathematician, his “parent” (i.e. dissertation advisor) and “children” (i.e. students).

I know that one of my colleagues is a ‘grandstudent’ of Turing but although Turing is listed here, my colleague isn’t. :-) I’ll have to remember who it is, find the details, and submit them.

Later: a sharp-eyed student pointed out that it’s Phil Grant, as you can see here.

2007-01-27: today I noticed that two more of my colleagues, Anton Setzer and Ulrich Berger, are grandstudents of Hilbert, in a line going back to Gauss, Dirichlet, Fourier, and Lagrange. Rather impressive.
