Palcic/ch DNA, have you had it done?

Dear Palcic/ch folks,
I am posting this on a separate thread altho it is partially an answer to you, Chris, as to what I thought odd about the R1b DNA haplogroup my husband, William, was reported to belong in (see Ancestry tree Virant/Verrant/Palcic/Palcich). From a little reading, it seems that the Slavic peoples, including the majority of the people currently living in Slovenia, do NOT belong to the R1b haplogroup. The R1b guys (as it is a paternal line)are the larger group in places like the British Isles, Basque Spain and Normandy. Our Ancestry.com report ties the R1b haplogroup to the early cave painters of Western Europe, in other words, long before the Slavic tribes' incursions into Central/Eastern Europe. As I have a big interest in prehistoric peoples, I frankly just thought this was the coolest thing. So..... I was wondering if any other Palcic/hs had had DNA work and or any thoughts on same.
Secondly (less cool but also interesting), DNA would, at least as I understand it, answer the question "Are all those Palcic/hs in the Loz valley and Croatia, not to mention the Pag connection, really and truly related or not?" Leading us, not surprisingly to "Are all those Palcic/hs in the US, Ireland, Australia really and truly related?" and then finally to the "Where shall we have the reunion? Who will bring the potica and who will bring the slivovitz?" questions!
Gosh, this is enough for one post! Please excuse my very tentative grasp of the science involved and levity but I do enjoy this line of investigation! Cyndy
