Tentative FH data

Is there a best/recommended way of recording individuals in FH, who are not confirmed relatives? This has come up for me when trying to go back into the 1700's.
I wanted to record the information that I had come across but I couldn't be certain the individuals were relatives until I did further research and perhaps found confirmation via another source.

This is a recurring topic that has been discussed many times.

See Knowledge Base > Recording Credibility of Family Relationships that offers various recording techniques, and lists over a dozen Forum threads on the subject that discuss them in more detail.

Thanks Mike, I will have a read and see what suits my data.

A short answer is that I use the IN PROGRESS flag that I have set to display a heavy dotted box for the person concerned in diagrams together with a "men at work" icon. Simple and effective.
