How can I find out if my great grandfather was related to the Russian czar?
Same way as anyone else researches their ancestry, you research back using the written records each person generates during their lifetime, so starting with your great grandfathers birth certificate/baptism record will show his parents and then research their written records back
The only way to know your family history and genealogy (who you are related to) is to do the research or pay someone to do it for you, which can get very expensive very quickly. (Professional genealogists charge on average US$20-$23+ an hour.) Start with yourself and work your way backwards, one generation at a time. Gather up your records, such as a birth certificate, marriage certificate (if applicable), newspaper articles and clippings regarding some of your accomplishments, journal entries, etc. Do the same for your parents, grandparents, etc You could take a DNA test, but such tests are meant to be a TOOL and not a substitute for proper genealogical research
The last Russian Czar was killed only 100 years ago, you should be able to research back that far in existing records, and/or from your living elderly relatives.

Test your DNA. May this be a guide to all
