Close vents in winter?

I have a crawl space under the front part of my house which opens to a full basement under the rear of the house. The front crawl space has vents that allows air to blow through. The only problem with this is there is no insulation under the floor in that section of the house (built in 1922) and this cold air can come through the open section into the finished part of the main basement.

I am going to close in the area that is open from one part to the other but I wonder should I close the vents also, or will this cause more problems than it solves?

Thanks for the help.

As a rule you close your vents in the winter, unless you live in the hot south.

I do live in North Mississippi, some people close theirs and others do not.
