I have several files while I am trying to do a family history project each file is a chapter - when I go to save the file the program makes me save it as a new file now I have several files of the same thing with little changes - How do I stop word from doing this. It will not even let me move the older file to another folder?

I think you are choosing Save as option instead of save . you can press control and S button to save while working on the document to avaoid creating multiple files.
