We like to put family before paper if we can in conducting genealogical research, but we often are faced with family members whose memories are hazy, whose knowledge may be limited, and who tell us stories or jokes that try our patience, frustrate us in our efforts to learn the truth about our ancestors, or send us down paths that prove to be blind alleys. I've encountered a number of such situations in my research, and I will share how I got back on track after running into brick walls, how I overcame obstacles to track down elusive relatives and learn about my family history. My presentation addresses methodologies that the researcher can use despite name changes, misidentification or misspellings of town names or surnames, and other problems.
