Is this the future of genealogy? Actually, it doesn’t look much different from today.
This 1988 Star Trek: The Next Generation episode shows what family history research might be like in the 24th century. An ancient space capsule was discovered floating near the Starship Enterprise. It appears to be from Earth. On board are three humans who are in suspended animation, a form of deep sleep that can last for centuries. The crew of the Starship Enterprise wakes the humans who now find themselves 376 years in the future from their last memories.
