I would think that of the many possibilities, that the evidence suggests a
reasonable probability that the 18 value in your case comes from your
Chihuahua State ancestors. One would only be able to say that with a high
degree of confidence if all of the other groups could be ruled out or put
into the very unlikely range. The most likely explanation of my 18 repeats
is via one of the European populations, although not at all common there. I
guess only the 9 repeats would provide the ultimate in confidence in a
finding that pertains to Native Americans.
