How to divide a database in two (or four)

05 April 2021 - 11:15 AM

I have a practical question that is easy to ask, but not obvious to me how to achieve. Gedmatch has a limitation of 10,000 people for gedcom uploads. My primary database is a single tree with about 22,000 people. (maybe 5% of this is ancestors, the remainder descendants iof ancestors).


Is there a practical way to create  a separate paternal and maternal tree, or even paternal grandfather, grandmother, and maternal grandfather grandmother tree?  



How to automatically generate Y (paternal) trees?

05 September 2020 - 06:54 PM

I'm beginning to try to understand my DNA results and this led me to wanting to do something with my tree

and I'm wondering if there is a smart way to do this automatically with Rootsmagic.


I'd like to begin with my most distant paternal line ancestor, and produce a tree

that only includes his male sons, and their male sons, recursively to current day.

Is there a way to do this using named groups, color coding or another feature?
