Zotero for Genealogy: Getting Your Ducks in a Row
 
Donna Baker first discovered the power of Zotero in graduate school, doing her doctoral work in history. This open-source, FREE software can store and/or reference digitized versions of all sorts of documents--text, images, sound, spreadsheets, and so much more. It can replace the binders, file cabinets, and other burdens that weigh the genealogist down. It also offers the structure for inputting citation information that can be output as properly formatted footnotes, endnotes, and bibliographic references in numerous different publishing styles. Zotero data can also be retrieved from wherever you travel to do research. In this presentation, she will give us a tour of Zotero and tell us how to get started in using it as a companion to our family trees.
