Lőrincz Csiby, born in Ditró, got very far away from his birthplace, but never forgot his roots. There is no commemoration in his homeland, the present study attempts to fill this lack. As a forest engineer, he went through the professional ranks, the top of which was the appointment as a teacher of the Forestry Academy of Selmecbánya. His early death prevented his academic and research work from being completed, but he still left behind major technical innovations, smaller inventions and numerous scientific papers. His gravesite is still present in the cemetery in Selmecbánya.
