2 small towns in Wisconsin that nobody has ever heard of (both population <2000).

Define "from."

It is the light she longs to find,
When she delights in learning more.
Her world is learning; it defines
The destiny she’s reaching for

Mine are both dead but my Dad was from London and my Mum was born in Australia. Her father I think was from the Uk too although I can't remember all the details. My wife would know.

I only think I know what cities they are from originally. we hardly ever talked about the past or anything.

I think if I'd been planted in California as a kid I'd have never wanted to leave. The weather there is so much better.

Everyone is just saying the country and not the city or state? Not very informative.

They’re both from Melbourne, but they lived closer to the city. My grandparents were all from here, too. One of my great grandfathers was from Scotland and another was from Adelaide.

My father primarily grew up in Perry Iowa, but lived many places in Iowa when he was younger due to his father moving to different towns for work as a brick layer. My mom grew up in Adel, Iowa. If you have watched the movie Bridges of Madison county the part with the courthouse is in the town my grew up in.

Both were raised in Saigon, Vietnam to my knowledge. I'm not sure though, I never asked and there are no birth records.

Both from the same area in the Midwest where they both grew up, had me in, my dad died in, my mom still lives in, and I still live in. Their parents were born, raised, and died or still live here too.
