Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (Mc)
Donald Jack MacDonald

Donald Jack “Mac” MacDonald was born on December 8, 1932 to Rose Anna Moyer and Angus Gillis MacDonald in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, Canada.  He died suddenly on August 19, 2005 at the age of 72 years in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA and was piped home at sunset on August 23, 2005 to the strains of “Amazing Grace”.  Mac is survived by his loving partner of many years and by his family and many friends from around the world.

Mac’s interest in genealogy started early.  His mother died when he was 6 years old.  He was raised in Foster Homes because his father was unable to care for him.  In 1999 he finally found his father’s family.  Shortly thereafter, he and Rosemary began putting together a genealogy family tree that now contains almost 52,000 names and continues to grow.  Mac was a kind man with a great sense of humor and he excelled at working hard to try and help others find their family.  He was a great genealogist because he knew the stories of the people and the places they lived.  He was a special man and very proud of his Scottish heritage.  In Gaelic he would be known as “duine usual”, a man of worth.  You are greatly missed, Mac.  God’s blessing on your journey home.

Rosemary continues their genealogy work in his memory.   She may be reached at

Note from Alastair McIntyre: Mac was a good friend of the Electric Scotland web site and used to send us in wee articles to add to the site.  He also helped arrange my stay in Cape Breton during 2004 when I was touring Canada. He will certainly me missed.
