  1. Good afternoon. This is probably a long shot but many years ago, I bought a baby picture in an antique store in New Brunswick, Canada. The photo was taken at Philbrick studios in Biddeford Maine and on the back is written “Ruth Waterhouse, born August 8, 1901. Picture taken February 15, 1902.” I would love to find her descendants and send the picture to them. Thank you.

    1. Susan,

      Best with your family history work!
