Diana Lynn Tibert has been exploring genealogy for more than thirty years. She is the author of Roots to the Past genealogy column which appears in several newspapers around Atlantic Canada. The column celebrated its 11th anniversary in October 2016.

Diana has also written articles about gardening, genealogy, horses and history for various magazines. Her fiction is published under her pen name: Diane Lynn McGyver. To date she has the following books available: Shadows in the Stone, Scattered Stones, Pockets of Wildflowers, Fowl Summer Nights and Nova Scotia – Live Near Water.

Look for her Roots to the Past — the first year (the book) in 2018. It will contain a collection of columns published between October 2005 and December 2006.

Diana lives on a small homestead in rural Nova Scotia where she raises heritage-breed goats, chickens and ducks.

  1. My name is Fiona Duigan-McKay and I am a descendant of Andrew Lothian Macdonald who was Deputy Sheriff on the Isle of Mull and also Isle of Lewis.

    While I was mucking around on the computer I came across the name Angus Lewis Macdonald who was born in Dunvegan near Inverness in Scotland.

    Not only that he was also a Roman Catholic as were my ancestors.

    Would it be possible for Angus junior or Oonagh to get in touch with me please?

    My e-mail is f.mckay@actrix.co.nz
