Congratulations to Cleo Aufderhaar, a SAGHS member and an amazing musician with the San Antonio Symphony.
In honor of International Women’s Day, here are some of the amazing female musicians and staff in the San Antonio Symphony. Women have not always been allowed ...to play in professional orchestras-the first known female orchestral musicians began in the UK in 1912 with the New Queen’s Hall Orchestra. (One of those females was Violist and composer Rebecca Clarke.). The last 50 years has seen considerable change in this, with many females outnumbering males in orchestras, both nationally and internationally.

In honor of Women's History Month, Gena Philibert-Ortega will be blogging every day about researching female ancestors.
Her first posting is a reminder that a birth certificate can be a record of the mother as much as a record of the child.
