membership phone list and activity attendance records


I am building a membership database for an organisation which has family members in it. The things we need are an address list and a roll that records who attends each activity. This is an ongoing exercise.

I have a table called "tblFamilies" with the primary field called "familyid". It also has fields for addresses, phone etc for the households.

I have another table called "tblPeople" with fields called "peopleid", "familyname" (drawn from "familyid" above), "pfn" (firstname).

I want to create the phone list so that it shows the surname, man's name, woman's name and children's names alongside each other and the home address.

I want attendances to be easily recorded. Preferably so that all individual's  names appear in a column with the activity alongside. Attendance needs to be tracked so we can follow trends.  


How do I do this so that we can can have a well presented phone list and an efficient means of recording individual attendances at activities?

Thanks

Create a form bound to Query ( tblfamilies + tblpeople linked on familiyid) and collect all master data. This will serve the purpose of presenting meaningful phonelist. However the tblpeople fields may preferably be added to tblfamilies.

Create another main form bound to Query ( tblfamilies + tbl people ) but all fields locked so user wouldn't be able to change the master data from this form.

place subform bound to activities related table with additional unique fields for presenting data relating to activities attended by the members.

in property sheet of report select from drop down the name of table/query as recordsource.

and for textboxes on report select from dropdown the name of table/queryfield like
