Here is an example of the kind of thing that you want to do.

A trivial notebook definition:
nbook[k_] := Notebook[{Cell[ToString[k], "Text"]}]

Here is how you can save a family of such notebooks
NotebookSave[nbook[#], "MGexample" <> ToString[#]<>".nb"] & /@ Range[10, 13]

Here is how you can retreive them
NotebookOpen["MGexample" <> ToString[#]] & /@ Range[10, 13]

Hope this helps.
