100 years ago on April 5th.. MY Grandparents moved to Canada from Switzerland with my Mom

April 5th 1911, my Scholer grandparents(with my Mom 1 year old) moved from Switzerland to Canada... they 'broke land' in Luseland, Saskatchewan...and my cousin is still living/farming on that homestead. My cousins in Switzerland sent me this set of pictures...what a treasure to have. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them. Enjoy!
