The Ciongoli family originally from Salerno, Italy, came at various times to New Jersey and Argentina. The family has since spread out as far west as Arizona and California. It is my desire to locate all family who descend from Tiberio Ciongoli born February 24, 1854. All of the information I have from Italy was sent to me by a young third generation cousin Bernardino Ciongoli, of Italy. Please contact me with any additional information. There will be no information of any living person placed on my webpage. Larry Hillpot
