There are only two industries that refer to their customers as "users".
Users and ResearchersThese tables document the people involved in creating the data held in the database. Users document the persons directly creating the database content whilst Researchers document all the data, including data that may have been imported from another database. Hence, all Users are Researchers but not all Researchers are Users.

|0||0||Place holder for the default User|
|1 (U1)||1 (Re1)||The initial User|
The User table is where settings that personalise the database and its display. All users are automatically listed as a researcher, this may be used in the future to tag changes made to the database. The only other setting at the moment is the home page family id.
|UserSetting table Core Data|
|[id] ID||[user_id] User||[property]||[val] Value|
|User Settings Properties|

Various settings may be held for each user. When a new user is created, the initial settings are set to the Default User settings.
|Researcher table Core Data|
|0||0||Place holder for Unstated Researcher|
|1 (Re1)||Anonymous||1||The initial Researcher|
Anyone who has had a hand in creating the data in the database and who needs to be credited can be listed in this table. Eventually, these entries will be linked to the data entries in the database. When a new database is created, the creator will normally be given the opportunity to edit the initial Re1 entry.
