In genealogy and wills, issue refers to a person's lineal descendants.

Lineal Descendants

"Issue" typically means a person's lineal descendants—all genetic descendants of a person, regardless of degree. Issue is a narrower category than heirs, which includes spouses, ancestors, and collaterals (siblings, cousins, aunts, and uncles). This meaning of issue arises most often in wills and trusts.
