Help with a database?

I am still very new to c++, but I would like to practice making something like a database, but I'm not exactly sure where to start. I know I don't know enough to make one yet, not even close. I tried, and failed very bad. I used if else statements to check each individual name so there was a long list of code between each persons name, and I eventually want to have well over 100 names into it, and i think that the code will end up very messy. But anyways, could anyone possibly give me a link to a very basic tutorial on making something like this, or perhaps give me some pointers? Thanks in advance!

You could take a look at SQLite3. There's an example here:
