Subject:Filtering families in PAF 4.0 (new user)

I must be missing something. I have a large file, 3000 names. 200 of these are people named "Deacon". How do I extract these people, with their immediate family groups, into a new gedcom file?

I have managed to filter on the family surname, to get the 200 people. I can also select any one individual, and get their family. But I can't figure out how to extend the selection of the 200 people to include their (perhaps 400) family members.

Thanks in advance for any help,
Keith
