Audacity-filter : How do I merge three tracks together in Audacity when audio overlaps at the beginning and end of each track? I just need a seamless track!

Hi there! Please save me from pulling my hair out!
I have three iPhone voice memos that at the time I had to email to myself from an iPod. Each track is 8 minutes long. Track 1 connects to Track 2 and share less than a second (so it hiccups if I just copy and paste T2 after T1 in Audacity) and then T3 overlaps T2 by a minute or so. (I did realize I had to convert these files into .mp3s so that step is done)
So I can't paste the tracks one after the other as audio is repeated. As a dolt I can't figure out how to delete less than a second so the audio flows seamlessly from one track to the next. Is Audacity sophisticated enough that if I copy a track after another it can recognize that the sections of the audio waves are exactly the same and just auto adjust?
If I have to do it manually, how do I slow the recording down so I can figure out the hundredth of the second I'm supposed to delete? I don't want the file itself to be slow motion just need it to let me read the proper time stamp!
It's my first time using an audio editing tool, please dumb it down for me! Videos, step by step tutorials, diagrams drawn on napkins are fully appreciated.
