I add them all or only the primary depending on which is found first. That
is, if I find a source that is not very reliable, I will enter that.
Later, I find a somewhat more relaible source which I add. Finally, I
locat a primary source and add it. But if I find the primary source first,
I don't push much to add the other sources (they are usually derivative
sources anyway, so are not much use.
>What's the "proper" way?
Other than looking for primary sources, there isn't a "proper" way. It's
up to you.
