Old Street NamesA friend in the US has asked us to look for an old friend who lived in Vinh Long. The catch is that many street names were changed in the late 1970's, and that street name was one of those changed. Anyone have an idea how to locate a street with a changed name?

5The street name was Hung Voung. To make it mo confusing, there is a Hung Voung street in Vinh Long today.

6There are two streets in Vinh Long today that are similarly named: one is Duong (Street) Hung Vuong (Hung Kings ) and the other is a parallel road to the South West called Duong (Street) Hung Dao Vuong (Hung Kings' Dynasty).
Both had exactly the same names in 1966, I checked some declassified maps.
As streets were generally renamed after 1975 it's likely the names were unchanged during the period 1966-75. The family may live on the same street today, or someone who lives on either of the streets may know where they live today.
