Dennis, How one spells his name in Roman letters depends on which Romanization system one uses. Normally, scholars in the United States use the McCune-Reischauer Romanization system. Presuming you mean the Catholic convert 앙중근 [安重根] 1879-1910, that would be Romanized An Chung-gŭn (with a circumflex over the second "u").  For information on Korean Romanization systems, see the Wikipedia article entitled Korean Romanization.

”The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” — Cicero, 55 BC

		I am researching the period in Korea from about 1890 through 1938.  Recently my attention has been greatly drawn to the life of Ahn Jung Geun but I am having a terrible time finding information about his life, including the early years.  Does anyone have a suggestion?
		Also, I have seen his named spelled An Jung Geun (I do not have access to the spelling in Hangul, unfortunately).  So which is preferred:  Ahn or An ?
		Thank you.	.	.	.===Dennis Regan===.	.	.	.
