I want to use a list found in a parent site as a lookup in a list.

As far as I could find was using external content types, however I don't know what the sql server back-end address is or what the table would be called that represents the list.

In the end-game, I want to use one column from the parent-site list as a lookup and then when I perform a workflow based on the subsite list. I want to send an e-mail to that look-up columns associated person.

Is there some way I can do this?
