I'm not very happy after reading what I have just read.I have found a discrepancy from two sources, one is from the University of Montreal(The main objective of the Programme de recherche en démographie historique (PRDH) Web site is to make the genealogical information on old Quebec that we have been accumulating for 30 years available on the Internet. Access to the genealogical information is presented in three separate but interrelated sections: a Repertory of vital events (1621-1799), a Genealogical dictionary of families (1621-1765), and a Repertory of couples and filial relations (1621-1799). http://www.genealogy.umontreal.ca/en/main.htmhttp://www.genealogy.umontreal.ca/en/main.htm
Go to this web site and click on Pioneers, then "and your ancestor?", then "a family name", type in Berard and hit OK, then click on the date of his birth.
And the other source is from a book that I received from a gentleman in Granby, PQ, about Gabriel Berard dit Lepine and his father.In these sources, it says that they were not born in the parish of St. Guingalois, but in the parish of St. Martin which was destroyed in the French Revolution.I'm very concerned about this, I visited St. Guingalois in Chateau du Loir, France.
