Proclamation of the City of Brentwood
Declaring October as Family History Month

WHEREAS, within our Nation's libraries and archives lie the treasured records that detail the history of our Nation, our States, our communities, and our citizens; and

WHEREAS, an ever-growing number of people in our Nation, and in other nations, are collecting, preserving, and sharing genealogies, personal documents, and memorabilia that detail the life and times of families around the world; and

WHEREAS, the study of family history gives individuals a sense of their heritage and a sense of responsibility in carrying out a legacy that their ancestors began; and

WHEREAS, interest in our personal family history transcends all cultural and religious affiliations; and

WHEREAS, the involvement of national, State, and local officials in promoting genealogy and in facilitating access to family history records in archives and libraries are important factors in the successful perception of nationwide camaraderie, support, and participation.

Now, therefore, be it Proclaimed, that the City Council of the City of Brentwood designates the month of October 2007 as `Family History Month'; and calls upon members of the community to observe the month with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

Dated this 9th day of October, 2007
