For USS Franklin researchers, I have obtained a copy of the USS Franklin muster roll copied from microfilm records of the US Navy. This muster roll contains records of the ships company as the sailors moved onto and off of the ship. This is not a complete account of all the ships transfers. Specifically, this does not include information on the Marine and Air groups on board the Franklin. The file is very large- at 2GB in size and may take some time to download from google drive. You must “Unzip” the file to reveal all of the individual pages in .jpg picture format.
This is very similar if not the same information available at www.ancestry.com.
