Illegitimacy in Family

Both my grandfather and grandmother on my dad's side are rumored to be illegitimately born. For my grandfather, I have been told that his mother was the person I thought was his sister growing up. The guy that is supposedly my great-grandfather has a name that seems to be very common among my surname. Is there any advice on how to figure all of this out?

Always work from yourself backward and take all family stories with a pinch of salt.

Your grandparents' birth certificates should give you the information you seek.
