For me the research log does what the CAN-[?] tags do. If I had a
person who had been in the Civil War I would enter a research task
titled Pension Application and Key Words that identify what source I
should look at and possibly where: NARA WashDC.

If I do not find a pension apllication I so note it in the task and mark
the task complete.
