Data is often partitioned into separate groups.
A partition is a group of folks related to each other, but not related to other folks in the GEDCOM file.
These groups of folks not related to each other form an "island", or partition.
Each partition is a seperate genealogical line.
To view the partitions within the GEDCOM file, use GEDCOM > Analysis > Partition Analysis ...
Expand a partition to browse it, and see the folks in the partition.
Partitions can be saved to produce a new file, or deleted.
Partitions can be used to divided a GEDCOM file into smaller files.

They will be in a partition of size 1.
