I am trying out Zotero, a citation aid that is an extension for Firefox. It is looking pretty good so far, but I wonder if anyone has any comments re pros and cons?

Shalom, dm87...whoever you are!

I use Zotero and find it very useful for my research, both in Reunion and as an Historian. I don't have to keep separate files of possible bibliographic resources since I can turn to them immediately through Zoltero and can access them no matter where I am in the world.

I'm relatively new to genealogy but have been to the NGS convention this year and have been pleased with my research progress. I used Legacy but became a MAC convert 2 months ago and I'm now working with Reunion 9. Hmmm. I will say that Legacy claims to use the Elizabeth Shown Mill's (ESM) standard for sources and does lots of other checking -- a program by genealogists. I've been reading the posts about citations, and sources, and citation philosophy on this Forum and I'm delighted and impressed by the knowledge, passion and helpfulness. That said, I fall into the ESM camp for EVIDENCE standards. I've read some of her case studies and articles and well...WOW. Sooo, I'm struggling with making my citations on Reunion 9 (which is why I've been reading this forum) and saw a reference to Endnote and in reading about Endnote...came across a reference to Zotero, downloaded it and now trying to figure it out. Then, I said to myself, search Zotero on Reunion 9 and this is all I found though in other posting I saw discussions of it. Sooo, for those wondering what it's all about, here is a link to a review http://www.insidehighered.com/views/mclemee/mclemee123 . btw: Endnote sued Zotero and the case was dismissed and George Mason Univ has dropped Endnote. I am interested in Zotero and I will work at learning it. So, I'm hoping to enliven this thread for anyone else who has an interest. John Yates, how are you doing and can you give the "See Spot Run" version of the work you're doing to help Reunion and Zotero or point me to it?? and thanks for mentioning ESM's quicksheet on citing Ancestry.
