Salem, ??

I don't know if Rowling specifically mentions Salem or not, but I doubt Virginia was its intended location... the Salem associated with witches is indeed in Massachusetts. See Salem witch trials. Gonk (Gonk!) 23:11, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Fred and George

I thought I heard somewhere that it was said they visited America on business for the joke shop. Maybe I just imagined it, it was a few years ago. --BachLynn23 02:00, July 23, 2010 (UTC) In a book or website?--Courage Hogwarts coa 00:21, October 18, 2010 (UTC)

I don't remember, it's frustrating, maybe I vividly imagined it, but for some reason I have this....memory...or image or whatever in my head of George or Fred commenting how they visited America about joke shop business and commenting how the wizards over there were...."different" isn't the right word, more like all running around and busy.....maybe I dreamed it, wouldn't surprise me. --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 00:32, October 18, 2010 (UTC)
I seem too remember this too, check the first movie in which they go too the store, and maybe the first (possibly only) scene in there, I think that's where either Fred or George makes a comment. It sticks out in my memory because I was always looking for little hints about what was going on as far as american magic (because I'm American)

Will someone please refresh my memory about where it says the Dumbledores were of American descent? 00:24, August 12, 2011 (UTC) An American warlock

In Deathly Hallows: "The mother, Kendra, had jet black hair pulled into a high bun. Her face had a carved quality about it. Harry thought of photos of Native Americans he'd seen as he studied her dark eyes, high cheekbones, and straight nose, formally composed above a high-necked silk gown." --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 01:01, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

PM/Presedent Comaparison

Editing the BTS bullet about the Prime Minister/President thing. First moving to trivia. Second, I was under the impression that the wizarding governing body, at least in Britan, was not an independent body, but rather a ministry of the government. Hence the Ministry of Magic. Feel free to correct me if you think I'm wrong.

I just removed it entirely because it's rather speculative. But, just so you know for the future, BTS is where trivia (among other things) goes, so you were incorrect to move it to a separate section. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 18:34, December 27, 2011 (UTC)
