Another excellent database that has material from Special Collections is the Ephemera Index. For those of you not familiar with the word ephemera, it is a term for printed material originally intended to have a limited life-span, such as programmes, posters, tickets, flyers and cards - which are essentially the typical items that are associated with musical events.
Good luck with finding your family's musicians.
