Longtime Lida District researcher Joseph (Joe) Fibel of New Rochelle,
NY passed away Saturday, Sept.8 at age 92.
His burial will be on Wednesday at Zion Memorial in Mamaroneck, NY,
likely around 1 PM. For more details, please contact Joe's grandson
Scott Steinhardt at scott@....
Joe had a wealth of documents pertaining to his family, and many other
family trees. His grandson Scott has saved all those documents -
paper and digital - and would love to share them.
Scott asks us to "please share this information with anyone who
knew Joe. I knew he was active in LitvakSIG and the JGS, Inc.(NY)
and kept in constant contact with members about finding other
families. It was something he loved doing, and he was good at it."

P.S. On a personal note, Joe was most likely the first good
friend I made in organized genealogy.He had valuable material
about the town of Voronovo, which he shared with me back in 1992.
He was my "landsman-in-law' and I will miss him. May his memory
be for a blessing.
