We use whose in relative clauses instead of his/her/their. Whose is used mostly for people.
e.g.: What's the name of the man whose car you borrowed.
Whom is possible instead of who when it is the object of the verb in the relative clause.
e.g.: The woman whom I wanted to see was away on holiday.
You can also use whom with a preposition.
e.g.: The woman with whom he fell in love left him after a few weeks.
We can use where in a relative clause to talk about a place.
e.g.: I recently went back to the town where I was born.
