Just started Roots on a Mac. I have family Histories that I would like to add to sources. Right now they are type written pages, one line a full book. The type pages are a few and one line a complete books worth. I do not have them in by computer put can scan them as a pdf. I would like other family members to view them on both PC and Mac so I thought PDF was better than pages or word files. Please help ?

And thanks in advance.

You can attach the PDF as a media file using the Media Type: File. On the Edit Source screen there is a Media tab where you can add it to the source. You would need to send that PDF to your family members if you wanted to share it with them. The PDF itself won't print out in a report or using Publisher to create a book.
