Google Earth Problem Finding Address

Post by rp76226 »

I inputted this address into Google Earth Pro, hoping to get a photo of an ancestor's actual address:

Via Ariosto, 5, 92020 Racalmuto, AG, Italy

Google Earth "finds" the address, so I attempt a street view of it by dragging and dropping the "little man figure" onto the street by the point mark for it. Instead of that address, it comes up as 29 Via Manzoni. Can't seem to get a photo of the Via Ariosto address even though google Earth indicates it found it. hopefully someone can, plus tell me what I'm doing wrong.

It is most likely that the street name was changed. It may now be Via Manzoni, and that is what Google earth recognizes.

You can email the comune and inquire about whether the street name was changed, and when.

You may also need to consider that the original dwelling may not be there.

If you zoom into this map of Racalmuto, you will see the location of Via Manzoni. Is this the same location that Google Earth "finds" Via Ariosto?

The weird thing is that before you do a "street" view, it shows the address on the "map" view plus it shows Via Monzoni as a different street in the map view that is perpendicular to Via Arisoto:

If you just click on the "little man figure" you will notice that there is no "sreet view" for Via Ariosto

That's what I said. It brings me to another street instead - Via Manzoni.

It brings you to another street because Google did not take any picture of Via Ariosto. Googlemap's behavior is correct.
