Hello: I am researching the surname TIBERT. My great grandfather was originally from New Germany, Nova Scotia, Canada and one of his cousins, George L. Tibert moved to Fargo, Cass. Co., North Dakota in the late 1800s. He married Mary Elizabeth LAWRENCE in Dec 1890 and had eight children born in Fargo. On my sight I have the children listed with the information I have found. I would like to complete the information if possible and maybe connect with a descendant. My grandmother of Liscomb Mills, NS was receiving mail and photos from a Charlie TIBBERT in Mass. and I was wondering if anyone knew of him. My grandparents are deceased, but I wonder if this Charlie would be the brother or cousin of John D. TYPERT. I appreciate any information you could provide. Thank You.
