Are you ready to create your first notebook in OneNote? I started with one notebook for each of my grandparents’ surnames. I added a fifth general genealogy information notebook later on and finally a “hold everything” research notebook to keep the odd bits of information and documents handy until I was ready to organize them.

With OneNote open, click on > File > New

The newest version of OneNote2013 does not let you save your notebooks on your hard drive anymore.  You have to chose OneDrive. In the space provided, name your notebook. Chose one of your Surnames. Click > Create Notebook.

You should now have a one-section, one-page notebook. Go ahead and make one for each of your four major surnames to get you started.

You can drag and drop your notebooks to rearrange them in any order you want.
