I am getting all the system Time Zones, now I am matching the Olson timexone with system
time zone, if matches then returning the system timezone i.e  windowsTimeZone.

now the problem is when I am using "America/New_York" it is returning the correct
"Eastern Standard Time"  but when i am using "America/Nassau" it is not returning the
"Eastern Standard Time"  it just returning the blank,

so, can you please guide me what's wrong in the follwoing code.

                        Many thanks.
 private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        private string GetWindowTimeZone(string oslon)
            string windowsTimeZone = null;
            TzdbDateTimeZoneSource Tzdb = new TzdbDateTimeZoneSource("NodaTime.TimeZones.Tzdb");

            //getting all the system time zones and matching with the Olson time zone
            foreach(TimeZoneInfo timeZone in TimeZoneInfo.GetSystemTimeZones())
                System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(timeZone.StandardName + " -- " + Tzdb.MapTimeZoneId(timeZone));
                if (Tzdb.MapTimeZoneId(timeZone) == oslon)
                    windowsTimeZone = timeZone.StandardName;

            return windowsTimeZone;
