Best Answer

According to Adrian Grant, author of "Michael Jackson: A Visual Documentary 1958 - 2009 The Official Tribute", the Jacksons left Indiana and moved to California in the winter of 1968 when they started recording with Mowtown. The boys and Joe Jackson lived with both Diana Ross and Barry Gordy. I also read somewhere that the family's move was completed the following year.
