Returned to Genealogy and Research: Got Zotero

Zotero is "the only research tool that automatically senses content in your web browser, allowing you to add it to your personal library with a single click."

"Zotero collects all your research in a single, searchable interface."
 
After reading The Gilded Hour by Sara Donati (aka Rosina Lippi) I visited her web pages, where she recommends Zotero.  Zotero is free, open source and just what I need. It is what every genealogist, student, political activist and writer needs.  My sincere thanks to all the Zotero contributors and to the following organizations for founding and developing Zotero.

"Zotero is a project of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, and was initially funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation."

My deepest gratitude to Rosina Lippi for her generosity in sharing this fabulous research tool, and great appreciation for her latest book, The Gilded Hour. My favorite kind of book is one that has a foundation of meticulous research, set in an earlier time, with a page-turning plot and characters who come to life. Writing as Sara Donati, Rosina Lippi delivers all that and more in The Gilded Hour.
