Cumulative Index to Niles' Register 18111849

Founded by Hezekiah Niles in 1811, Niles' Register also known as The Weekly Register, Niles' Weekly Register, and Niles' National Register was a highly influential weekly American newspaper which offered comprehensive coverage of news and current affairs in United States and the wider world. It is a key source for scholars researching the first half of the nineteenth century and contemporary responses to events such as the War of 1812, the Napoleonic Wars, the Indian Wars, and the revolutions of 1820, 1830, and 1848; it also provides valuable insights into the early history of the railroads, manufacturing and industrialization, and canal-building in the United States.

The Cumulative Index to Niles' Register is an indispensable finding-aid for scholars working with this uniquely important source, providing more than 389,000 item-level subject entries relating to the 30,000 printed pages that comprise Niles' Register in all its guises. As part of C19, entries in the Niles' Register Index can be cross-searched with more than 22 million entries for other nineteenth-century sources; subject headings can also be linked to the full text of Niles' Register available to institutions that have access to ProQuest's American Periodicals Series (APS) collection.

The addition of the Cumulative Index to Niles' Register to C19 Index marks the 200th anniversary of the founding of Niles' Register.
