Without putting words in Elizabeth's mouth, but speaking for myself,
I add comments and evaluations to my source citations so they are
there for reference when I am ready to write a narrative
argument. My program of choice, RootsMagic, makes it easy to add
notes and qualitative assessments to any source, and change or remove
them when or if desired.
