Calculate a position in a variety of formats

I am working with fellow Vietnam vets to locate MIAs. We have 1966-70 era topo locations, probably WGS60 or 66. Once I locate a physical feature on the topo and find it on Google Earth i can decline the view point and provide others a realistic terrain view to help them define events.
Using the Earth Point conversion utility,working with WGS84, the results are off by about 30 kilometers. My question- is there a standard adjustment that I can apply to the Earth Point conversion latitude and longitude to get something that will correctly correspond to the Vietnam era maps?
hope this is not too confussing, but I'm no cartographer. There are hundreds of these locations to determine, and any help would be much appreciated.
