Looking for a very old record that might or might not exist. Sources?

I am looking for recordings from a particular singer -- a soprano working on the radio in Chicago, on KYW (now a Philly station, still owned by Westinghouse), from 1924 to 1931 at least. I know she performed/"recorded" piano rolls for Vocalstyle in Cincinnati, which is what makes me wonder/hope if she might have cut a record singing.
Where would I go to research this? I know very little about old records. I don't actually care if it's the physical record or a digital recording of the physical record or what; I don't need to own the artifact, just the voice.
