not sure how to define it, but it could range from a "strong tie" of being born/growing up some place to a "weak tie" of having family some place.
so yeah, arguably you'd have ties to all 7 places, but there will only be maybe 2 or 3 where they'd be strong enough to matter. general rule of thumb, if you can talk intelligently about a place, show a connection, and know things about the place that only a local would know, then it would count.
I split most of my childhood between 2 of them, went to ug in another, and moved to 2 of them for work. Would those would be strong enough to matter, yea?
