  • Abstract:

    Through ongoing research, this website aims to:

    - Increase the number of known early 'homœopathists' (practitioners, chemists, supporters), and homœopathic businesses
    (hospitals, chemists, dispensaries), and to record details about them and their background.

    - Update and correct existing information about these people and businesses.

    This page provides a brief record of recent additions and/or changes, with links to the full details for those items.
