Where's Waldo... er... the Ancestry Insider? Clue 1

The Ancestry Insider's appearance in Waldo style

A year ago the Family Tree Magazine staff Simpsonized themselves and then challenged me to reveal my Simpsonized appearance. My Simpsonized self does not meet the FamilySearch dress code, so when I came across http://www.findwaldo.com/avatar, I took the opportunity to Waldo-ize myself with white shirt and tie. Say, I look like I'm on my way somewhere.

Which I am. I'm on my way to... Well... Maybe I'll let you guess. I'll give you one clue per day, posted at noon Utah time. Respond to this message with your one official guess. If you change your mind, delete the old guess and post the new guess. The earliest dated correct answer wins. I'll announce where I was on Friday.

Clue 1: Pennsylvanians are in me.

Stay tuned...

  1. My first guess is a cemetery in the Salt Lake City area. I don't know the names of cemeteries there, so will leave it at that for now.

    How can we edit or delete comments? Just say "do over" and you'll ignore the previous comment?

    Fun stuff -- Randy

  2. Randy,

    Hmmm. I had just assumed that if you were logged in, you'd be able to delete your own comments. Obviously, anonymous posters would not be able to do that. Yes, I think you've hit on the solution. Just give another guess. Each person's final guess will be their official entry.

  3. Perhaps is Pennsylvania is in "me", perhaps the Pennsylvanian is also in ME (Maine).

  4. Pennsylvania Dutch heritage = you were in Germany/Holland.

  5. My guess is Montreal Quebec.

    There is a Temple there that does not yet have new FamilySearch but it has been announced.

    Do you have ancestors from Pennsylvania?

    There is also a White House motel in Bangor, but this one looks more interesting.

  14. Sorry! Forgot to say you are at the office on 800 N Capitol St NW, Washington, DC. Not the one on Penn. Ave. What's the difference?
