“Immigrant Stories of South St. Paul: Then and Now.”
We have been invited to show the movie again at the South St. Paul Public Library on October 17, 2016 at 6 p.m. Following the screening, we’ll have an open discussion about the film and the experiences of all immigrant groups in South St. Paul including work at the stockyards, family histories, food and music. Admission is free, but seating is limited, so if you plan to join us, please arrive early to get a good seat. Light refreshments will be served.
This site is devoted to the documentary film, “A Thousand Dollars and Back: Recollections of Early Romanian Immigration to Minnesota,” based on oral history interviews with descendants of original immigrants to the communities of Saint Paul and South Saint Paul, Minnesota.
The film was created in 2014 with Minnesota Legacy Grant funds obtained by the Heritage Organization of Romanian Americans in Minnesota or “HORA,” in partnership with Romanian Genealogy Society and Town Square Television, all nonprofit organizations.

This project has been financed in part with funds provided by the State of Minnesota through the Minnesota Historical Society from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
