  1. sweden SWEDEN ROOTSWEB USER GUIDELINE Hello, I'd like to take the time to welcome you to the Swedish List and share information that will help make your research efforts more successful. Please keep this message filed for future reference. FIRST: It is important to know that the letters with diacritical marks are separate letters in the Swedish alphabet and placed at the end, and all lists are alphabetized accordingly. When people emigrate these letters are altered in both peoples names and places which may make locating your ancestor in Sweden a little more difficult. They can be formed in the following ways: FOR PC USER: make sure the Num (Number) Lock on your key pad is on, then hold the Alt key and the following numbers from the number pad: Alt-142 = Ä Alt-132 = ä Alt-143 = Å Alt-134 = å Alt-153 = Ö Alt-148 = ö FOR MAC USERS: The following keystrokes will make the letters on a Mac - alt(option)-a / - shift-alt(option)-a / - alt(option)-u and then a / - alt
