Hi Prabha have you resolved this?
Just run an seo audit ( free - search online)
Find all broken links
Map old to new links
Use a 301 plugin to fix these.
I would recommend checking in Google webmaster - it shows 404 properly as well.
If there are certain links you no longer want, you can let google know via webmaster

If you are using blogger, go to blogger settings and select "Search Preferences".
Click on Custom Redirect and Enter both, old and new URL in "From" and "to".
This usually helps when you need to fix one URL at a time.

Dont worry, place 301 redirection always so that those 404 urls would redirect to the new urls and link juice will also be pass on to the new urls. For wordpress, you will get plenty of plugins for this redirection.
