How did you figure out where people were from? (ex. Jack)

The location where characters reside is pulled from various bits of data usually seen or referenced in flashbacks on the show, or in conversations between characters on the island. For example, Boone's checkbook indicates he is from Malibu. Locke says he worked for a Box company in Tustin. Sayid says he is from Tikrit. In the case of Jack, Boston is a guess based on he and his father being close fans of the Red Sox. It's possible he isn't in Boston, of course, but we have at least been pointed in that direction. As with everything on this site, nothing is set in stone, so if we find out later he is living elsewhere... time to update.
