    Hello. I am researching my great-grandfather, Liberato Cardarelli (or Cardarello). He said that he was born in Gilolona, Italy on May 28, 1858, but that town does not exist. We have found an Italian birth record for Liberato Cardarello born on May 30, 1858 in Ciorlano, Italy (pretty close in date and spelling), and based on his mother’s birth record, we believe this is correct. We are looking for any relations still in the Ciorlano area. Thank you.
