display multiple locations contained in one table row

Hi everyone,

 

I'm wondering if someone might be able to give me some quick pointers on what I think should be a fairly easy function to perform in ArcGIS.

 

I have a table which contains data about unique individuals in nineteenth-century Suffolk. There are multiple fields which contain location data because for each person I know where they were born, were they subsequently lived, and where they worked. Is it possible in ArcGIS to plot all of these locations on a map at the same time? And then is there a tool to draw a line between locations that feature in the same row of data? My goal, for example, is to show where a person lived and where they worked (as in travelled to work each day), and then finally to measure the distance between these points so as to arrive at an average distance for work travel.

 

I hope that makes sense!

Many thanks,

Rosalind.
