Relating records in same table


Hi all.

I just started using FileMaker Pro today so please bear with me.

I have a table called Contacts and I'm trying to add the ability to relate one contact to another.   I've already duplicated the table but can't seem to get any further than that.  Is it better to add a portal or a lookup to handle this?

I should add that I've tried both and can't get either to work.  When I type in "Tom" to find the "Tom Smith" record, nothing happens at all.  I think I am probably missing something easy.
