Relative Clauses - which/from where

Hello, I have some doubts about relative clauses.
I think I know all the main theory about them, but while doing an exercise I thought about some answers which the book doesn't give me.
In the examples I'll write the FIRST word is what the book says is right, and the SECOND is another option which I wondered to be right or wrong:

- It was curious to find out more about this place from where/WHICH we had emigrated.

- The reason why/FOR WHICH I hadn't visited it ...

- It had something to do with the way that/IN WHICH they talked about it.

- They spoke of the time when/ON WHICH I was a child...

- Maths is a subject which/THAT she has little interest in.

- These are the reasons why/FOR WHICH I chose to marry him.


I hope you can help me, thanks in advance. :)

    - It was curious to find out more about this place from where/WHICH we had emigrated. - both are OK I prefer 'from which'.

    - The reason why/FOR WHICH I hadn't visited it ... The reason WHY is more acceptable.

    - It had something to do with the way that/IN WHICH they talked about it. Both are good.

    - They spoke of the time when/ON WHICH I was a child... 'On which' is incorrect. You could say 'during which'.

    - Maths is a subject which/THAT she has little interest in. Both are OK.

    - These are the reasons why/FOR WHICH I chose to marry him. The reasons WHY is more acceptable.
