Looking for Katsura Cercidiphyllum japonicum

Does anyone know of a mailorder nursery that has these? Years back, I had seen a very nice specimen in Edmonton, Alberta, I was surprised that the tree was hardy in this location ... I should have been wise and noted the address!

If anyone would have seed (I guess it's easy to start)... I'd be glad to make a trade of something interesting in return.

Try asking in the northern garden forum for referrals. You will need to search for a nursery closer to your location the reason is you need to ensure the plants you get is hardy to your area. Sometimes trees are grafted onto hardier stocks which makes it seem as if they've gotten hardier in that zone. Or it may be that the climate is warmiing up and more plants are able to survive in zones lower. For example, I was surprised by the proliferation of japanese maple trees in my zone which is a zone 5 or a US zone 4. I later discovered that many were grafted. Same thing with David Austen Roses.
