whom I want to go

Good evening/day everyone,

I have problems with forming sentences where I have a 'to want' in the relative clause. (This is the best title I came up with, feel free to change it.)

For instance, let's work on the sentences below:

There are many people here.
I don't want them to go there.


I want to merge these into one sentence. Here's my try: There are many people here whom I don't want to go there.

But this doesn't sound right. Maybe instead of whom I should use from whom ?

Can you please help?

Thank you in advance!

    Hi Rallino!

    "Whom" is technically correct in your sentence - but it's exceedingly formal:(.

    In normal everyday conversation, my vote would go to either
    There are a lot of people here that I don't want to go there.

    or
    There are a lot of people here I don't want to go there.
