How to split a gedcom?

I am trying to split up my tree into smaller portions to stay within the guidelines of uploading a gedcom.  I have split off my mother's side and removed all ancients and even descendants, etc.  My father's side is a different story.  I still have 8200 individuals.  I tried splitting at my grandparents, but their families are so intertwined, that I still end up with the same count.  Any ideas would be appreciated!

I've been uploading my family a few generations at a time. So for example, on my mother's side perhaps her, her parents, and their parents, and including all descendants for 2 generations to catch all brothers, sisters, etc.  I will then look at my WikiTree end-of-line folks to see where to start for the next GEDCOM export/upload.  It's slower, I know, than uploading thousands at once, but personally, I appreciate the opportunity to review the folks I've uploaded, clean up their profiles, and perhaps find information that I may have missed previously and forgotten I didn't have (like marriage dates, etc.)
