If they are still alive, DNA test your parents or grandparents.  A closer relationship is more likely to give a positive DNA match.

However, you also need to realize that when all with a surname are "related", it means, at most, only that everyone with the surname has the same mother's husband's mother's husband's mother's husband, etc., if you go back enough generations (even this isn't always true).  It does not mean that they are all biological relatives or share DNA.  It just takes one person in one generation whose mother was impregnated by someone other than her husband.

You can't "research this farther" unless you are willing to research this father.
