What are the opinions of someone who has some Jewish ancestry wanting to join the religion?

Basically I have family members that go back generations that practiced Judaism, as far as I know only on my fathers side. For one reason or another they distanced themselves from the religion. Now as I understand Jews regard you as a non-Jew if it’s through the paternal-line. So this bars me from joining anything orthodox, correct? What would be my options as far as partaking in the religion. I don’t know if I believe in God or not but I feel a close connection with the religion and people. Would like to know more about it and what make options might be.

Thank you
