Another word that the ז.כ.ר root produces is that for a reminder – תִּזְכּוֹרֶת.

For example:

מִי שֶׁנִּמְצָא בָּאָרֶץ לֹא צָרִיךְ תִּזְכּוֹרֶת שֶׁהָעֶרֶב וּמָחָר יוֹם הַזִּכָּרוֹן לְחַלָלֵי מַעַרְכוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵל וּלְנִפְגְּעֵי פְּעֻלּוֹת הָאֵיבָה.

Whoever is in Israel (literally, the land) doesn’t need a reminder that this evening and tomorrow is the Day of Remembrance for Israeli Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism.
