I have a master file of close to 30000 individuals, amassed from over 30 years of work. I have lost interest in following distant cousins, husbands, wives and others who are not direct line ancestors. In RM I have created groups which are my ancestors and my wife's ancestors. I would like to make thee separate files so I can focus only on direct lines. How do I (or can I) make new files which contain only this sub-group of individuals? Any guidance would be appreciated. You can respond to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.

Create a group of the individuals you want in the new database. Color-code that group. Then use drag n drop to add everyone with that color to a new database. The video links below demonstrates how each feature works.
