The Matlock/Matlack and various spellings DNA project





I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me those who are to come. I looked back and

saw my father and his father and all our fathers, and in front to see my son and his son,

and the sons upon sons beyond. And their eyes were my eyes. As I felt so they had felt, and

were to feel, as then, so now, as tomorrow and forever. Then I was not afraid, for I was in

a long line that had no beginning and no end. And the hand of his father grasped my father's

hand and his hand was in mine, and my unborn son took my right hand and all, up and down the

line that stretched from Time That Was to Time That Is and Is Not Yet, raised their hands to

show the link. And we found that we were one, born of Woman, Son of Man, made in the Image,

fashioned in the womb by the Will of God, the Eternal Father."
