Woman seeks help tracking down her family heritage

I am Pamela Anderson, the daughter of the late John L (Andy or Jack) Anderson and the granddaughter of the late Raymond L. Anderson and Velma (Piney) (Jack) Anderson.

I am working on our heritage and was praying you could be able to help me find some of my relatives and more of my background. I do know that both of my grandparents are buried in the Frostburg Cemetery. I would love to have a copy of their obituary if you have it on record. Raymond was born in October 1910 and passed away in October or March 1976 and Velma was born in 1916 and passed in 1998.

If you have any information on the Anderson family I would love to have a copy of anything you have my email address is Pamela_anderson49417@yahoo.com.

I do remember we lived in Zihlman, Md. I would love all of the information that I could get on my family. Thank you so much for your help in this matter.

    Time was that we looked for heroes. Heroes of the make-believe variety have sold a lot of comic books. We also had real-life heroes like Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, whose deaths the whole nation mourned.
    These days, we seem to be more interested in looking for villains. “Vote for me because I’m the good guy” has taken a back seat to “Don’t vote for him, because he’s the bad guy.”
