Re: Family Historian Help

Have a look at the standard Search for Orphans query:

"This query is designed to make it easy to locate individuals who have no relatives.  However, it also makes it easy to locate small groups of individuals who are all related to one another, but not to anyone else.
 
It works by introducing the idea of a 'pool'.  A pool is a group of individuals who are directly or indirectly related to one another (you are "indirectly related" to X, if you are directly related to someone who is directly related to X - or if you are directly related to someone who is indirectly related to X, for that matter).
 
Family Historian works out how many pools there are, and arbitrarily assigns numbers to them.  By sorting on pool number, it is easy to see both how many pools there are, and how many people belong to each of them.
 
If you have a small tree file in which everyone is directly or indirectly related to everyone else, there will be only one pool, numbered 1."

P.S. I've redacted the personal information in your post -- unwise to include it when you don't know who'll be seeing it.
