Pretty sure this is a place holder or really old town name. There are 5 zip codes assigned, but they are not active (41901 - 41906). Nothing in 419** is valid. Lexington is the place that comes up on the map for these. So, i'm guessing this is an old zip code that is no longer used, and in some databases is marked as "migrate" to some other town.

You can get the weather or find an apartment there. :D

Also, this would be the lat/lon coord: 38° 2' 57" N / 84° 30' 1" W

A Town Named Migrate, KY
By Samuel Arbesman | Published: June 27, 2011
In a Wall Street Journal article about winning the American green card lottery due to a computer error, there’s a great anecdote:

In the days when the lottery was paper-based, the State Department’s Kentucky Consular Center, which handles the program, created a post-office address with a fictitious city named Migrate, Ky., putting the address on applications. Applicants mailed their forms to the city and lottery winners who eventually settled in the U.S. would sometimes search in vain for Migrate on the U.S. map.

:D Congrats. It was a trick question and it was that very article that inspired it when I read it earlier today. But I appreciate the efforts you three put in, so I'll split up the reward among the 3 of you.
