Why not create a large single database where you import each of the
others. As part of the import, add the reference as to the database
from which it came. Now when you look up a name in the big one, it will
contain the source of the orginal database. The Find in RM is very good
and with the auto complete, its quite fast. This would also tell you
when you have duplicates in more than one database if the name and
information repeats in the big composite.
