The Galveston "Shipmate Profiles" system now has 767 listings of men who served aboard her. If you are looking for an old shipmate, or just curious about the past crew, the "Shipmate Profiles" page is the place to start.

Since Jan 1 of this year there have been 23 new shipmate postings in the "Profile System".

By the way, anytime you would like to check who the "new" guys are it's easy to do. Just log in with your profile id and password. On the page you'll see next, click on the "Search" button in the "Browse" box. Near the top of the next page that displays is a "List" button right under the blue bar that says, "List Shipmates by most recently registered (or updated):", click it and there you are!
