      Dear David,
      The street you mentioned is listed under the Street Name Translator. In the Austrian era it was Siebenb├╝rgerstrasse (vom Kriegerdenkmal bis zum Volksgarten); I remember it very well. It is now called Vulitza Holovna (was Ulitza Glavnaya in Russian and Ulitza Lenina under the Soviets). It is by now well known that many streets (wherever names had been given by sections belonging in fact to one longer street), have been merged and we can clearly see it when analysing the Ukrainian map. Regarding the house numbers - I was told by my brother who was there some 5-6 years ago that due to the street merging process the buildings were renumbered; he recognized our apartment building right away and even found a Jewish family living in our apartment for the last 25 years. It seems that while in Czernowitz you'll have to find somebody who lives there or is familiar with the history of the neighbourhood or you'll find a register in the municipality where those changes are recorded.

      Mimi was lucky that she found somebody who was able to help during her visits.
      Regards, AK

      Dear Czernowitzers,

      My family lived at four addresses in the 1920s and 1930s. I only know two
      of these; numbers 7 and 20 Str. Stefan cel Mare.

      I wonder if anyone might be able to advise me how easy it would be to locate
      these addresses in modern Chernivtsi. Is the street numbering still the
      same? I don't suppose anyone has a map with house numbers shown? Or if the
      numbering was changed, is there any way of finding the new numbers given the
      old ones?

      Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks,

      David
