Another table, another layout?


Dear hopefully helpful people:


I am preparing to embark on a long historical research trip. I plan on creating two sets of data. One, the main database will have all of my history notes. Since I expect to encounter a lot of different historical actors, I went to create a second layout in the same database that would hold information. I was hoping to figure out how I could connect them to the point that I could hyperlink between my history notes in one layout and the tables/second layout where I was going to keep biographical detail.


I started out by just created two layouts, one of them for my history research and the other for biographical details. Yet I realized that I am ending up having the same number of records. since the only field connecting the two layouts is biographical people (a checkbox in one layout, a drop-down on the other), I am really not sure how they have the same number of records and how that would work.


Would the best thing for me to do to be to simply create a second layout, and not worry about connecting them? Or am I going about this all wrong?:


Best regards, and thank you for any help you can provide.
