My in-laws get a lot of blocked ID nuisance calls, often in the middle of the night. Are any systems in place to allow tracing of these calls to learn the source?

Feature *57 may be able to track the number  if it comes from a normal telephone system, but the results are only released  to Law Enforcement agencies  and will only be used for investigation of harassing, obscene or threatening calls.

Unfortunately a number of these calls originate from Voice over IP (VOIP) phone systems and the detail information from this type of call is not always available.  To complicate things a number of the VOIP calls are from outside of North America and finding the caller is next to impossible.
