Electronic database, Niles' Register: Cumulative Index, 1811-1849. Complied and edited by Bill Earle, 1995, 2002-2018.

Index to The Weekly Register, Niles' Register and Niles' National Register newspapers. This Niles’ Register search tool permits searches on topics and articles in the weekly news publication founded by Hezekiah Niles in Baltimore, Maryland. The Weekly Register and its succeeding titles, Niles’ Weekly Register and Niles’ National Register, were published from 1811-1849 by several editors in Baltimore, Washington, and Philadelphia. The content was national and international in scope, so significant events of nineteenth-century America and the world are covered in its pages.

The index features 408,000 entries relating to events, people, places, and things, as well as more than 28,000 individuals cited by standardized names.


This cumulative index was compiled, edited, and designed by William H. "Bill" Earle beginning in 1995. He offered subscriptions to access the content and continued expanding and updating his website until 2018. In that year, Mr. Earle donated the Cumulative Index database to the Maryland State Archives to supply the public with free, online access to his resources.
