Hi S,

The grammatically correct answer should be -

Ce sont la ville et le village de mes ancêtres 

But you will hear ‘c’est la ville et le village ...’ in every day speech 

It is one of the mistakes which are common place in every day French and I must admit that it doesn’t shock me at all!

Hope this helps!
