Not with the built in Geant4 object (G4PrimaryVertex). However, your generator can attach an object of type G4VUserPrimaryVertexInformation to the vertex which is created. By making a subclass of this type, you can store arbitrary additional data, such as the identity of your source or other configuration stuff.

You can then access this information (and dynamically cast to your subclass) in your event analysis (UserAction) code.

Unfortunately, I don't see that any of our examples directly demonstrate how this works. Example RE01 does show how to use G4VUserTrackInformation, which is an analogous class for use with individual tracks.
