    "If you've been collecting genealogical bookmarks for some time now, you may be having difficulty keeping them
    organized in your browser's bookmark facility. An easy way to fix this would be to create your own bookmark
    page, or even a small set of interlinked bookmark pages, saved on your own hard drive."

    "You can do this using your word processor program or a text editor such as WordPad or NotePad so long as you save
    the file as a text file instead of a formatted document file."
