How should I capture the source of contacts being brought in to Sugar?

I am building a SugarCRM CE system to replace several other systems. For this I have to import contacts from multiple systems.

I would like to save from which system the data came. Now there is a field "Lead Source" which sounds like it would suite my needs. The only problem is that this contact could have been available in multiple systems. Since I'm doing some matching to prevent the creation of duplicates, I will just have one contact in SugarCRM and I would like to know it was present i 2 systems.

What would be the bast practise to capture this information? Should I just create a new module for it and create a many-to-many relation, or is there some more appropriate solution to do this?
