Importing biblio info from a list of footnotes

edited February 24, 2020
I'm halfway through a longish paper and have decided to switch over to Zotero to manage citations and build a bibliography. In my Word document, I have maybe 40 footnotes, most of which contain all needed bibliographic information.

Word lets me select all footnotes and paste them into a new Word document. From there, I can remove ibids and other unnecessary info and adapt page ranges to conform to what's needed in a bibliography.

I'd rather not manually rework every footnote citation. Is there a way to import all this into Zotero so that it recognizes standard (Chicago M.S., in this case) footnote style and puts info in the necessary fields?

Zotero does so much other magical stuff that I figured it was worth asking.

Thank you.
