Hi its near on 50 years since I started looking for my Dad without much luck, I know hhe is from Dundalk our local priest told me they had located him and that he had a large family .
I have managed to have got the names of 4 of his kin, If anyone knows of a Bernard Shortt (Short) or any of his family the priest told me there were 2 people with the same name being Bernard Shortt when he visited Ireland on behalf of the Australian migrant trust.
please send me an email [email protected]
I am doing a family tree .
I know my dad is no longer alive but I would like to make contact with his family who still live in Dundalk . Thanks

Hi last April I wrote in this comment page asking for help in finding my DAD... with my hopes built up and heart beating fast I took the plunge and took down the names of Bernadette Shorts Family in the hope I was on the right track to finding my DAD. From what my mother had told me of him and friends of my mum who new my dad it seemed so real. Sadly after DNA test were done it was not to be my heart slowed down so fast after getting back the results saying NO. some how I feel some one knows of him now I am near on 70 I guess its too late to keep searching .
I thank the family for being so obliging in helping me out via phone calls emails and the DNA .
WE hope to visit Dundalk in 2013 and thank them personally for the spirit of hope that was there at the time was great.
