Edam, SK

 My great grandfather homesteaded two 640 acres plots. the family name was Hiemstra. They came around 1906. He was born in Holland. He sold part of his property to the Canadian Northern Railway, and he also had a contract to grade and lay gravel for a road.

I will need to look up/remind myself of his first name.

Three generations of my family lived on that land which included 12 cows, 50 horses. He grew wheat.

Does anyone know this family name? Are there any pictures of Saskatoon (I believe that was the city closest to their property?) around 1906 or after? Does anyone have pictures of Edam around 1906 or thereafter. The school? The general store? Apparently there was a fire in 1912 due to a lamp catching things on fire.

Would love to hear from any and all: please reply

I am currently trying to put together our family history for posterity and seek information/pictures/anything
thank you for your help to me and my family
