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, or complete the feedback box below.
