Can I say"Mon oncle vient du havre" as both my uncle comes from have and my uncle is coming from Havre??
This question relates to:French lesson "Using 'à' (to/in) and 'de' (from/of) with cities (prepositions)"

'My uncle comes from Le Havre' (originates from) and
'My uncle is coming from le Havre today' would both be:
'Mon oncle vient du Havre' in French
but the context would clarify which meaning applies...
Hope this helps!

What are the contracted forms of au and/or du,in response to "du Havre" and not "de Havre?"

If I have understood your question correctly -
à + le = au
de + le = du
Je vais au Havre
Je viens du Havre
