When the user logs in you can use a WebService to Extract his history from the Database and embed the data in the page.

You can then subclass the text control and capture the keystrokes  as he types compare the letters to the data you have saved and fill the textbox.

So you would need:
1) Database connection
2) Webservice that reads database info
3) Webservice that sends data to a calling web page
4) Subclassed Textbox that intercepts keystrokes

Seems like a lot of work!
