Importing Contacts

I am a brand new user of Act Pro 2011.  I am switching over from a relational database that I created in MS Access.  I have three databases comprising Company, Contacts, and notes for each contact.  There are several contacts for each company, and each contact has several notes.  They are related to each other through ID's.  What is the best way to import all the data so that they automatically are grouped together by company?  There are over 10,000 records, so I don't want to individually associate each company to the corresponding contacts.  I also would like the notes to show up for each contact.  Again, what is the best way to import this so it automatically relates the notes to the contacts?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
