    In the USA everybody is an immigrant. However, Slavs frequently feel like their former economic status makes them not as appreciated as they deserve.

    It seems you are ignoring the Bulgarians?

    Or the South Slavs in general. But here, this addition should make you happy (English subs included, btw):

    Hopefully they’ll make a vid for John Atanasoff later on as well. As for our Serbo-Croat fellows, I think Nikola Tesla needs no introduction.

    Can’t edit, so… P.S. Peter Petroff also worked in the States, so here’s his vid as well:

    My local Orthodox Church’s large donors board. My ancestors were among the founders of this church. Here is my Uncle Ivan (John in USA) sandwiched between Macedonians, Serbians, Bulgarians, Russians and other Ukrainians. He even has a different font than the others. What’s up with that? Anyway, my Uncle John paid for icons, chandeliers, etc. which were imported from Russia. He also bequeathed large sums to the Church which is why he and the others are memorialized on the board. I’m proud of him. From a peasant in Volyn to wealth in America. I think he did more with his life than me and he had much less opportunities than me. I need to work harder, I guess.
