Hillary Clinton's Letter

The White House
Washington

July 21, 1999

Dear Friends,

I 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.

When 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.

Please accept my best wishes for a wonderful day.

Sincerely yours,

Hillary Rodham Clinton
