Extracting data from one table that is not in another table

Experts,

I am creating table10  From Table1.  However, I only want what is not in Table2 - Table9.  The unique key is claim. What would be the most efficient way to do this?

try using a make table from a union query

select f1,f2,f3,f4
from table1 left join table2
on table1.claim=table2.claim
where table2.claim is null

union

select f1,f2,f3,f4
from table1 left join table3
on table1.claim=table3.claim
where table3.claim is null
union

...continue up to table9

To continue Rey's thought.
After you create the union query, create a query that does a left join of table1 to the union.  Select only records where the key field in the union query is null.
