How do I sort pages in a book into order

I have begun to upload pages of an old manuscript book at

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Notes

Or possibly 

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Notes_re_Mackenzie_Family

How do I merge the two?

And how do I sort the pages so they are in numerical order?

Indeed, how will I ever index them?

To sort the pages, perhaps listing the links would work. The links can be arrenged into a table:

Page 1 Page 5 Page 9 Page 13 Page 17
Page 2 Page 6 Page 10 Page 14 Page 18
Page 3 Page 7 Page 11 Page 15 Page 19
Page 4 Page 8 Page 12 Page 16 Page 20

 

Having the table in the Free-Space profile the pages can be easily reached.

I would create an Excel table with several columns.  This will allow you to sort various ways.

Columns I would include are:

page number (you would need to give each page a number which it looks like you have)

First Name

Last Name

DOBirth

DOMarriage

DODeath

Spouse first name

Spouse last name

Parents

Mother Maiden Name

you can also include locations.

I am going to send you via private email a sample of what I have done like this.  Hopefully it will help.
