BANKS - St. Kitts/Nevis

I am trying to solve a mystery surrounding the origins of James A. Banks. His US immigration records cite that he was born in Basseterre, St. Kitts in 1878. He entered the U.S. in May 1893 departing from Basseterre, St. Kitts on the ship Belair. He married in 1894 and listed his mother as Mary M. Phillip and his father as William A. Banks. Other children to Mary are Ernest Martin, Arthur Martin, James McDonald Martin, and Ellen Maude Martin. I would like to find a birth record for James A. Banks and corroborating documentation for this family. Any information about this family on the island of St. Kitts or Nevis will be greatly appreciated.

Found a lot of stuff on ancestry.com paid subscription and even more on generations.kn (which is now defunct), so I switched to www.myheritage.com and www.familysearch.org, and they're both working quite well for me; it's just a matter of tying the names into each other. I'm sure you'll find them both helpful. Best to you.

Thank you, Dee, I have access to both databases you mentioned. This is just a sticky wicket until some new record gets loaded.
