Google produces no results, and I'm looking for a specific english word for a story I'm doing. it'l most likely have the suffix of "cide"

What I'm looking for is the word that refers to the killing of an entire family. Wiping them out. Sons, daughters, aunts, everyone in that family that shares that last name so that bloodline would never continue. Would it be Genocide? I thought that word only applied to the killing of an entire race.

Familicide is usually murder-suicide within the family, but it's used also to describe killings of family members e.g. as punishment for a crime. Distant relatives within a blood line is a stretch, so maybe something like lineaicide? Or you could just be less obtuse. A dictionary is not a license.

Dunno Lydia, but i've also got a word question:
>when you have a really good idea but don't know how to do the thing
I've been wondering if there exists a word for that. Like, when you have (in your mind) a kickass punchline for a joke but have no idea what the buildup for it could be, only fragments of a story that you can't quite fit togheter.
The frustrating feeling of knowing your destination but not how to get there.
Anyone know a word for something like that?

What do you call the bit in between a table and a wall, you know, a gap, but between a table and a wall?

We had a vocab thread a while back, and someone used a word for "the warmth from the sun on a cool day". Anyone remember that one?

This was posted almost a year ago, but...
I think the word suffix would be -machy (like the centauromachy, or tauromachy), so kinmachy perhaps?

Maybe the beginnings of Creutzfeldt-Jacob?
