Is she Paillard or Saillard?

This person was amerge of two - one with the Paillard and one with the name Saillard.  PRDH uses Saillard.  Her son's marriage record has her listed but I can't tell is that's a P or an S.  Can someone tell for sure and recommend if a name change is needed or not?

My Suggestions list denotes her as error 511 Unique name.  Since Michelle and Catherine would not be unique, I think the suggestion is referring to the last name.

There is an additional question in the bio (not a suggestion) about whether Michelle is part of her name.  Bonus points for an answer to that!

That looks like an S to me.  If you look at the other S in the text, they are the same style. You can see the capital P used in Picard a couple of times with a distinctive flourish, very different from the S. Just my 2 cents.

suggestions list is based on how many times it appears in Wikitree, so that is not really a criterion.  That said, the marriage record for her son has her as Saillard, the P is written differently in Mathieu's wife's name.

Meanwhile, PRDH marriage date should read ''Before'' 31 Dec 1636, ie they don't actually have a date of marriage, estimating before then due to son's birth.

There is a date of birth for her on the profile, suggest you add French roots tag and get their help seeing if that is documentable or not.

Thank you, Danielle,  I made the change about the marriage being "before".    The marriage of the son was in Quebec so I appreciate help with that part of the record, for her name.  Both Paillard/Saillard and her spouse Gervais have the French Roots project category on their profiles already.  Isabelle has already looked once and I've just now added her note to the comments section of those profiles.
