I've been going through some of these forum posts, and a couple of them have said that there was a part of the Shorten family that moved to the United States. I just so happen to be a product of that group that moved. :]
I live in Florida and used to live in Washington (state). Does anyone have any information about Shortens moving out to the northwest? I've always been rather curious about my ancestry, and have never been able to find much information on it.
