Question Obtaining the Parent Information for a Track

Dear geant4 experts,

I need to retreive a secondary track's parent name. I know it's not as easy as getting the parent ID by simply using GetParentID(). These tracks are created in a sensitive detector and are used to find the deposited energy. However, their parents are the ones that actually hit the detector. I need to find the name and (creation) vertex position of these parents. Is there any simple way to do this (without having to use G4VDecayChannel)?

Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
Maryam
