English term or phrase: Issue
I am translating a birth certifcate from Queensland/Australia. In the section where the parents are listed there is the mention of "issue", first issue-living (names and ages) and then issue-deceased. I have never come across this before. It usually says "previous children of the same parents". I just would like to receive some confirmation: Does "issue" stand for "previous children"?

Explanation:
Another word for offspring.

There might be certain legal connotations to it, i.e. legitimate vs illegitimate children, but in general you can read it as offspring.
