I've posted before about how each of our ancestors could have hundreds of descendants. You can find them! It's called descendancy research.
The basic idea here is that you're trying to move forward in time instead of backwards. You pick one of your ancestor's siblings and try to find their spouse and children. Then you try to find all of their grandchildren and so forth.
If you want to see which descendants are already found, Puzzilla is a great resource. Puzzilla shows a simplified version of FamilySearch family tree. You can then choose an ancestor and view all of their descendants that are listed in family tree. By looking for gaps in your ancestors' descendant trees you can easily identify research opportunities.
Jessica used Puzzilla to find new research opportunities and bring names to the temple. You can read about her experience on her blog.
Is your family tree done? Have you researched any of your ancestor's descendants?
