I've worked through some of this but still would like
some opinions. Maybe it's not clear but I haven't
received any responses.
Basically to tie the records together I will use the
recordID (auto incrementing) in every table where the
records are written.
Then I can grab everything out of that recordID.

> Table 2 - Bob has 3 records
> 1st record - I am Spanish
> 2nd record - I am French
> 3rd reocrd - I am English

> MemberID (int) MemberID (int)
> Language (varchar) Nationality (varchar)
