How to get to the First parent location?

P: 16
I want to get to the parent location each time I'm adding a record. the problem is that i have a nested iframes, and each time the number of those is incremented:

eg.

second: parent.parent.location
third: parent.parent.parent.location

how could i get to the initial location, without adding each time "parent."
