This Memoir is written through the eyes, interviews, research and experiences of the author. It is a gift to his family; a verification of genetic history once lost, now found, resulting in discovery that had no memory, and memories that made a 70-year reunion possible. It is also a story for all, starting within this family and it's consistent success in the professions that helped corroborate the passion and need to communicate. From printers, writers and publishers to vaudevillians and Hollywood actors, this true story reminds all of us about the wonders of inheritance, and how it's relevancy revealed the seemingly miraculous. This family, once together and thriving, then separated for decades, now united and forever recorded within their memories and the contents of this book.
Scott Lee Needham's professions have ranged from management, to business owner to Electrician. He has written poetry for twenty years, but never took his writing seriously enough to publish...until now. IT'S IN THEIR BLOOD was a story that was not a choice as he describes, but a passionate and purposeful venture that resulted in not only his families historical recording, but a story for all to enjoy. Soon to publish his poetry, he also is working on a children's book. He lives with his wife and daughter in Southern California.
