You have the function org-contacts which helps you search through your contacts. From there you can quickly jump to the contact you want to link, store a link to that heading `org-store-link' and insert that link in your todo.org with `C-c C-l' and then `M-p'. > Do I have to make a manual link to the people.org file instance to be > able to easily access that persons contact information? In essence this is just a plain old manual org link to the right headline in person.org. The procedure described above is not very automatic. You may want to take a look at helm. Its a completion and narrowing framework, something a bit like ido, but way more powerful. There is a plugin for helm that lets you search/complete/narrow over the headline of an org-file. It might even offer to execute certain actions on said headlines such as creating and inserting a link to them. I just heard of said plugin, but never used it. If it does indeed have described functionality it would make linking to a contact as simple as pressing a key binding (launching helm on people.org) typing a few characters to narrow to the contact you want to insert and press enter to insert said link.
