Getting those Special Characters

Those of us with ancestors in countries where English is not spoken occasionally need non-standard characters as part of our ancestral names or locations.

Jans Jürgens Janßsen was born in Holtrop.
Samuel Johnson was born in Tjårstad.

You get the idea.

Directions for creating such characters can be found at: http://www.forlang.wsu.edu/help/keyboards.asp
