Can one use this in the passe compose; Je suis venu; I came from?

Or the imperfect Je venais; I used to or was coming 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. :-)
