Families are the relationship between a parent document and its children.

Parents, Children, and Standalone Documents

Parent document: documents that include/have attachments/embedded files.

Child/Children document(s): documents that are attachments/embedded files. For example, an email with attachments: the email would be the parent document, and the attachments would be its children.
โ€‹Standalone documents are those that do not have any attachments/embedded files.
