hi! i am also looking for berards. here is what i know, don't know if it's a connection. my ggrandfather named arthur joseph berard, d. prior to 1919 of typhoid fever. his father named amedie berard who was married to a harriet ? they were from attleboro(?) mass. arthur also had a son named joseph. i think there was an aunt named albina. i found an amedie berard on the lds family look-up web site born 1842 whose parents were joseph berard and charlotte roireau. i believe there was a brother to amedie (older) named joseph. they were listed from st.matthias, rouville, quebec.
