Need Help Finding old street addresses not on current maps

Postby rp76226 » 18 Sep 2014, 04:47

Based on 3 addresses found on my family's civil records for Racalmuto, Agrigento, Sicily, I have tried unsuccessfully to find them on the official online Racalmuto site that has a Racalmuto map and also on Google Earth. My goal is to get a photo through Google Earth or other means of these addresses. The 3 addresses for Racalmuto are:

1. Via Carso (no number given 'senza' on the record for number) where my grandfather was born in 1896 (birth record #262, May 26).

2. 46 Via Matrice where his father died in 1899 (also record #262 - just a coincidence, November 30).

3. 22 Via Pio Nono where his mother died in 1914 (record # 89, April 4).

I'm hoping that there is some way to find what those street names have been changed to.

in the past, I have emailed a town in question, as someone there can readily tell you if a street name has changed and what the street is now called.

Via Matrice might be the street where the "chiesa Matrice" (the "mother" of other churches) stood.
It should now be near via Garibaldi and via Salvaggio.
