No need to feel stupid!

I use firefox, but I'm sure it's similar on other browsers - just to the right of the address bar (where it says what page you are on) there is a star. Simply click on the star and the page will be bookmarked. You can also sort your bookmarks into different folders to find them easier, eg a "family history" folder, or whatever suits you.

Hope that makes sense.

Thank you Maddy.
I thought it must be a special Rootschat bookmark, that I have never been able to find.
Glad I was brave enough to ask. :D

Ah, a RootsChat bookmarking system - an interesting idea. Often I try to remember where I've read something on here and using the "search" function doesn't always get there as you need to search specific terms and hopefully remember who posted.
