This is the town ........( where/ which) I was born. This is the town ........( where/ which) I was born in.
Which word in parenthesis is correct? As we can see, the second one has " in " at the end, and I want to know if it makes any difference.

I see that you have pointed out the in at the end of the second sentence. However it does not gel very well with either of the two - where/ which - in that position.
The sentence would be: This is the town which I was born in and it sounds rather odd.
In must go with which, but as shown in the usage 2 above.
Let me point you to a similar discussion here.
Hope this helps.
