Is there a way to mark a branch in the tree as a dead end?

I am wondering if it is possible ot mark a branch of the family tree as a dead end, so I can stop going into that branch and looking for people that do not exist. I keep forgetting which family either did not have kids or died out without kids and spending time every once in a while researching to find someone that does not exist.

On a side note - is it just my family or is it common for many branches in a family to die out? I do not have a number on it off the top of my head, but this has happened probably 20 times so far since my GGG grandparents. At least 4 of their 7 kids lines died out, and of the other 3 kids who had kids, I keep running into descendant lines that die out.

Anyway - hope the original question is not too weird. Just looking for a way to easily mark a line as done so I can stop poking around.
