Dear Matthew Hamer:
Thank you for posting on History Hub!
Since the USS Massachusetts was commissioned in the 1940s, you can contact the National Archives at College Park and request the deck logs. This National Archives webpage A History of Naval Deck Logs has good information for your research and the National Archives at College Park email address is email@example.com.
Hi James, appreciate the reply. There were a number of vessels that had the name "Massachusetts", I'm looking for records with respect to the Indiana-class USS Massachusetts commissioned in 1896, not the South Dakota-class Massachusetts that served in WW2. Would I contact the same people for a ship of that vintage? Thanks
