We are working as quickly as possible to get all of the information in for each individual. Due to the website being hacked several times, we are uploading information from our 2001 database backup which is creating a very slow process. We expect to have everyone's full information in by the end of the August. Check here for progress updates. Thank you for your patience. For those of you interested in family history, we will be loading family data sheets and additional resources once the basic information is completed for each sailor.
