Three questions need to be answered to determine this:

  1. Is there a verifiable paternal line paper trail from Franz Joseph directly down to you?
  2. Has another male descendant who also has a verifiable unbroken paternal line of descent from Franz Joseph taken a Y DNA test?
  3. Do your Y DNA results closely match that of the other descendant?

If you can answer all three questions with a yes, then it is very possible to determine whether or not you descend from Franz Joseph.
