Quincy Massachusetts used to be called Braintree, MA. You should add something about it being renamed. When they were born it was Braintree.

Quincy was the northern part of Braintree and was split off in 1792. Braintree is still a separate town.

I know there's already a question about Mexico, but Queretaro would be a good one to add (bonus points if you can pronounce it correctly).

For some reason, at some point during this quiz my mind thought the answers had to be 3-letter words starting with Q. I was wondering why it was so hard!

Northern Virginia native, can't believe I missed the FBI crime lab question... probably would have gotten it if the clue was something about the Marine Corps, though I realize there's a TV show about the FBI based there I've never seen it.

I recommend you guys change the Queluz hint to "Town near Queluz famous for its Versailles-like palace". No one in Portugal sees Queluz as a city in its english definition, and even I, a Portuguese had no idea it was going to be Queluz.

I live in Montréal and I know a lot of Québécois who would be very offended to see you wrote the name of their province without the acute accent... ;)
