How do you document positive Ancestry matches?

What methods are you using to keep track of the details of those Ancestry matches which you have decided are positive?

Since most of mine do not have the 'hint leaf' showing, I cannot find them that way. I have been marking them with a star and a note saying 'Positive match --- with the details', but now I am getting so many starred items, as I use it for positive matches and also high potential matches that need further work.

I am saving screen captures of the ones which end up with Ancestry finding a common ancestor - but once again, Ancestry does not find and display all of them.

So for the time being, I am keeping a written paper log of my findings, but really wish there was some way of marking and retrieving all of them online.

What kind of system is everyone using?
