At the turn of the 19th century, thousands of immigrants traveled to the United States. For one Lithuanian family, the journey to escape Russian repression landed them at Ellis Island and into the Midwest. In this audio documentary, producer R. May tells the story of how her great grandparents settled in South Saint Paul, Minnesota, living the American dream as business owners of a successful neighborhood grocery, Miller & Czekanowski.
