Road Blocks

I know that we have all hit a road block sometime during our research, and would like some idea's on how to get around them. Some of the best ways that I have found to get past them include:

1. Changing to a new surname.
2. Researching on a sibling/father/mother of person
3. Round Robin with family members to get a better history.
4. Play with the spelling of the surname (soundex)
5. Take a break for a little while, and then have another look.

This may not sound like a lot but they are very helpful in getting past some roadblocks. Now if the roadblocks are because of limitations in research facilities, well we can cover that at another time.
