Presidents’ Day

Monday is Presidents’ Day, or so it is marked on my calendar? But is this the correct name for the holiday? Depending on where you live it may not be. See my post President’s, Presidents’ or Presidents for more about what name it should be.

Tonight I will share some images from and links to previous posts about our American presidents.

You can visit my post Political Genealogy II to find out where in Scotland and Germany his family came from. The post also has information about Hillary’s ancestry. Do you know which of their families have been in the US the longest?

I hope that everyone enjoys the holiday on Monday. Even my friends up north of the border in Canada have a holiday on Monday. However, it is because it is Family Day in Canada.
