    Add Breton, 1/32 Irish, 1/128 Scottish, 1/256 Italian, 1/1024 Maltese, 1/1024 Swiss-German, distant Portuguese [including Azorean], as well as remote Belgian [Walloon] and English. Include Acadian as part of his French-Canadian ancestry. Also, tag Ligurian. I don’t see First Nations ancestry so far, but the ancestry of Paschal’s mother, Rachel Lavallée, has not yet been expanded.
