believe the Wales bit was a story.....perhaps he was waylaid there. Maybe it was easier to say Barry than some great long unpronounceable thing. I will say DNA shows the Baltics and Swedish/Finnish/Norwegian.

1. Why wouldn't he just say London, or Cardiff? He consistently said Barry Docks, Wales.

2. DNA doesn't lie. Michael's father could have been  a Norwegian national living in Wales, maybe just for a few years, had a son whose birth he didn't bother to register because Wales was a foreign country to him, and moved on or returned to Norway.

Therefore, I think you should follow back this man, Abraham Reim, b Bergen, Norway, who lived and died in Cardiff. Lived near the docks and seems to have an occupation involved with trade. Maybe he found Adrian a job in Barry Docks doing the same thing.

I am inclined to believe the 1911 Canada Census re: Grdad's entry to Canada which he says was 1906...which is onlya period of 6 yrs later re: his St John NB  entry; rather than the 1921 record relying on memory (of ca 15 yrs later), / SS Onslow ship mentioned/ I post these queries which seem similar at times as the years pass more information is available or someone new has more ideas. His occupation is listered a Steward on the 1904 Marriage Registration to Bushen and says that  Adrianoff Riim is his father (deceased) I do know that Barry Wales was a seagoing port of importance with Ships coming in from the Baltics and also went to America. Now to have a family member with the Abraham Reim line doing a DNA. Still and all if a passenger list could be located for my grandad entering the USA in October 1904 one never knows what scrap of information may be on it. Thanks again oldohiohome for your time.

Was he a steward on the ship coming over, maybe. I don't know how that would affect your search. I know he wouldn't have shown up on the regular Ellis Island manifests, but sometimes I have run into lists of crews, I just don't remember when.

Try Googling to see who ran passenger or even cargo lines from Cardiff to St Johns or to Savannah. You might be looking for off line records somewhere. I haven't seen him turn up anywhere except in the records you already have in Canada and New England.
