I am trying to clean up a large database with over 1000 "trees" in it. I want to delete an entire tree in one fell swoop, or even 3 or 4 steps. It appears to be a rare problem (from searching the archives, help, the web, and the book), but I'd sure like to find a way to do it.
So far, my cumbersome process is to "move" the tree to it's new singular database, then use process  or  below, depending on size of the tree.
 delete the few members as "family" and "person" if there's <30 people.. The issue I hate is tracking down and deleting the spouse ancestors.
 laboriously create a NEW LARGE database, and move everyone EXCEPT the tree I want to delete. This manages to work well, but is really cumbersome with 1000+ trees. and creates a lot of databases to work with.
Any ideas on deleting whole trees?
Is there a way to identify trees --other than Tools/"count trees"?
