old meets new

I live in a 1910 farmhouse that had an addition in 1996. Two adjacent rooms, one old and one new have a similar problem. Fixtures and outlets that are not registering a full 120 Volts and do not function. I have checked all connections hot and neutral. replaced switches and outlets and checked all junction boxes. The breaker is sound (I switched out circuts to verify). I am at a loss. Anyone had a similar problem or solution? Thanks.

Need more info.
What voltage do you get hot to neutral?
Hot to ground?
Neutral to ground?
Has any wiring been changed recently?
It sounds like an open neutral. If you have any back stabbed receptacles change the wires to the screw.
