Learn about the history of the Romanian community in Minnesota and about the activities of two local organizations who aim to preserve it.
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. For more information, go to one of the mentioned websites, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or complete the feedback box below.
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.
