If we can see light from a couple of billion years ago reflected from far distant objects as they were then, can we estimate where those objects are today?

Can we estimate where the Milky Way was long ago and how the universe looked long ago?

Is there any way to estimate "where" the "big bang" occurred?

Is there any such thing as a universal reference point; ie, something by which any objects' movement can be measured?
