Or the imperfect Je venais; I used to or was coming from?

This relates to:
Venir de, d', du, des + country / state / region = To come/be from -

Bonjour Leo,

If you're talking about where you're from in the sense of where you grew up, no. Using a past tense would be suggesting that you you came from (passé composé) or used to come from (imperfect), say, New York, but now you come from somewhere else, which doesn't make any sense unless you're reincarnated. :-)
