|TD, you referring to DANFS when you say information on the ships can be found online? Was looking at the DANFS entry on the Wabash earlier. Prefer going through Haze Gray and Underway over the Naval History and Heritage Command to get to DANFS entries, but the latter does do them alphabetically instead of by type so it can be faster tog that route. But then you run into the whole multiple ships of the same name and if you're not sure which order then you gotta play a little.
Edit: on topic, you might want to try checking this page, http://www.history.navy.mil/faqs/FAQ-records.htm. I will give you info on contact info for deck logs/ship records and muster rolls/crew lists.
