Genealogies of the Bible is a running index of genealogies of individuals as they are found throughout the Bible, along with a description and other pertinent info. The genealogies are organized by scripture reference and are also displayed in a diagram / family tree.

From the Introduction:
Genealogies are one of the major literary genres of the Bible. They answer the fundamental question: Who are the people of God? They are much more than a list of names or a “who’s-who” in the Bible. The genealogies establish a framework for understanding the biblical narratives in the broad historical, theological, and canonical contexts and reveal the big picture of God’s sovereignty and grace in salvation history. The genealogies show that the Bible was written against the backdrop of His family.

This work, Genealogies of the Bible, addresses the ancestry of biblical characters (both Jews and Gentiles) across the broad expanse of biblical history, from the time of Creation through the era of the early Christian church. It represents the culmination of a decade of systematic biblical research on all genealogies that are presented in sacred Scripture. Family lineages for major and minor figures in the Old and New Testaments are summarized in 325 concise, easy-to-follow charts. Also included are lists of notable persons (e.g., families of returning exiles, the twelve disciples, etc.), along with helpful supplementary charts about groups of people in the First and Second Temple periods (kings of Assyria, Babylon, and Persia, the house of the Maccabees, the Herodian dynasty, the high priests of Israel, etc.).

    This work highlights how important geneaology is in the Biblical narrative and to understanding who someone is and the associated generational connections/trends. It is a very useful resource and provides wealth of information that is searchable. This is not just limited to the geneaology, but often gives a life overview as well. Diagrams are footnoted so you can see specific bible references and details at various pints in the diagrams. The book has eliminated hours of work to reconstruct the geneaologies of famous as well as less famous persons in the OT and NT. The book is arranged by biblical book where names first appear. This is generally helpful. At a glance you can see many connections not otherwise immediately obvious from the scattered references to individuals and geneaologies. For example, The High Priest Aaron married a Judahite woman and Joshua Son of Nun is descended from Joseph. The main limitation to the resource is you cannot currently copy and paste the valuable geneaology diagrams. Accordance could have made this more explicit. Screenshots are a way around this, though less than ideal. Hopefully, Accordance can consider a way to address this in a future update, perhaps by adding images alongside the searchable diagrams. I have found the information provided is generally quite accurate, though there are occasional minor points that appear incorrect. For example, a comment on Jer 35 in relation to the Rechabites says King Jehoiakim summoned Jaazaniah to the house of the Lord, but Jer 35:1-5 suggests it was Jeremiah who did this.
