Clinton sent this letter of congratulations, which was
read at the launch celebration of BostonFamilyHistory.com.
The complete text is below the image.
am pleased to have this opportunity to send greetings
to each of you attending the unveiling of BostonFamilyHistory.com,
the new web site of the Boston History Collaborative.
President Clinton and I created the White House Millennium
Council, we invited all Americans to join us in activities
that embody our national theme, "Honor the Past
-- Imagine the Future." One of the best ways we
can imagine our future is to preserve what we value
of our past. I am grateful for the efforts of the Boston
History Collaborative to provide a unique way for Americans
to trace their ancestry and to learn about the important
contributions that immigrants have made to Boston and
our nation as a whole. It is my hope that projects such
as BostonFamilyHistory.com will encourage a national
effort to take this unique moment in time to ensure
that we pass on to our children, grandchildren, and
great-grandchildren both the symbols and the gifts of
liberty and creativity that make us who we are.
accept my best wishes for a wonderful day.
