I add them in the notes of the events. I also add them when I transcribe the document into the Source Citation's Research Notes.

Like Renee, I add them in the Event notes. I also add the informants of births and deaths

These could be "Witnesses" to a shared event. You could create a custom role to fit the need. I have a role of "GodParent" (I don't know if it's standard or custom.) for the "Christen" fact that has the sentence template, "[ThisPerson] was the god <%father|mother|parent> of [person]."
