Qualitative analysis is being described as a way of thinking that is active, interactive, systematic, organized and sustained. It is a process, often disorganized, that gradually focuses on the emerging themes in the study. The process has specific and common procedures to the methods. In this paper we focus on memos one of the common procedures that has increasingly importance and acknowledgement in the literature. We will use the memos developed during a history study illustrate its role in qualitative analysis. The merit of qualitative studies lies in the quality of its findings. To this quality contribute the memos that are basically the expression of reflexivity.
