    Genealogy search for foster care records
    My grandmother and her sister were in Foster care about 1897- 1910 in Lewiston Maine. They were born in Boston, how can I find records, court or family records of where they were placed and why. Family lore said their parents had died, however, I found parents were still living during this time.

    I have found a few interesting things, but none that say for sure why Elizabeth and Julia were in foster care. Private message me your email address and I will send you a few things.
