Ok, I got it now. I was trying to click on the archives button at the top instead of clicking the drop down box for the Archives button. Clicking the archives button only brings up the page with a list of the groups with no links except to the you tube video. When I clicked the dropdown box instead, I got to select the Gen Tools Study Group then the event for Jan 6, 2016. Then I saw the register button :-) Thanks!

Contrary to what I said during the hangout there is a way to sort the tables in Onenote.  Just put your cursor in the column you want to sort by, go to the Table Tools tab and you'll get the choice to sort from A to Z or Z to A based on the content of the chosen column.  If you want to go back to the original sorting, just Ctrl-Z :)

+Shelley Murphy I actually use both. I use evernote more for clipping and research on specific individuals. OneNote I use more for group research. If I have microfilm with multiple families in an area that I made lots of scans from. It helps me straighten out before I begin sourcing. I have a notebook for each microfilm, pages for each surname and then all the information I need for properly citing and keeping track of every fact that I want it cited to. It's something you can use excel with as well but I find OneNote better as I can add notes as I go without adding cells.
