Do You Explain Your Estimations?

If you estimate someone's year of birth, in your notes/sources/documentation, include how you arrived at that estimation. Some time later you may want to recall why you thought that estimated date was correct. No one's memory is 100% and including your reason may help you to re-evaluate that date if necessary.
