P is for Printingalphabet tree

The easiest way to add a file−document, PDF, photo, genealogy chart−is to use the Print Function in the program where you are viewing the document. If you would like to “see” the file on a Page in your Surname Notebook, this is the simplest way to accomplish that.

One of the Pages that I have added to my direct line ancestors is a Timeline that I’ve made up as a table in MSWord. Shown below is the 8 page Timeline for my great grandfather, Henry George Buisch.

To get this document into the Buisch Notebook in Henry’s Section, I would Click File > Print > Under “Printer” choose “Send to OneNote 2013” from the drop-down menu > Click Print.

Note that I have OneNote in my task bar at the bottom of the screen but it’s not currently opened. After a few seconds, the task bar icon will start to blink. When I open OneNote, I get a window that that asks where I want to insert the printout with a list of my Notebooks. I can choose a Section or a Page inside a Notebook. I want the Timeline to be on its own Page that I will make a Subpage of Charts & Reports so I chose the Buisch Notebook and then Henry’s Section.

OneNote opens the Notebook and Section I chose and the Timeline is added as a Page at the bottom of the Page Navigation Menu as “Printout”. All that’s needed is to change the name of the Page and to move it up under Charts & Reports and then slide the Page tab to the right to make it a Subpage.

I really love this option for the Charts & Reports that are available in my genealogy software. I decided to add the Bow Tie Chart I created for yesterday’s post where I was trying to figure out how many names I would have going back 5 generations from my father’s parents to his Charts & Reports Page. Here is the chart in Family Tree Maker. Click Print > Choose Send to OneNote 2013.

This time I chose the Charts & Reports Page instead of just my father’s Section in the Williamson Notebook.

The Bow Tie Chart is inserted onto the Charts & Reports Page for my father. I moved the second page of the chart up to nest next to the first page.

In the next two posts, I will show you other ways to attach and insert files.
