    Hi Frank the New Bedford Whaling Museum Library has an online database of its logbook holdings http://www.whalingmuseum.org/explore/library/logbooks-journals - which is a good place to start. You can download it and search and select on years, ship, captain, etc which is really useful. Many of their log books are also digitized and online. Providence Library has logbooks on line as well which you can download although they were microfilmed and quite hard to read. Nothing beats the real thing and turning the pages! Mystic Seaport Museum Archive and Library also has a good collection.
