Besides the geneology's role
in forensic anthropology and other race-finding stuff, what may be its application in Anthropology as whole?
help me out?

In the field of Biblical Anthropology, genealogical research is critical in tracing the ruler-priest lines that culminate in the person of Jesus.

Twentieth century scholarship has failed to account for the purpose of the Bible and for the uniqueness of Genesis. In part, this is due to the blind eye European scholars have turned to the African origins of the material. Today it is virtually impossible to ignore the African origins since every field employed in the study of Scripture points us to the African ancestors of Christ our God. These were ruler-priests who married the daughters of other ruler-priests and thereby preserved their priestly bloodlines through intermarriage. The endogamous marriage pattern is consistent throughout the Bible and can be traced from Genesis 4 to Jesus. The pattern ends with Jesus’ appearance, having fulfilled its purpose and the purpose of the Bible.

Long before the emergence of a people called Israel, ruler-priests controlled the vast water systems of the ancient world from Africa to India They built kingdoms and at the center of their kingdoms they built temples and shrines where they worshiped the High God. They practiced animal sacrifice and offered prayers with incense. They regarded water as the element of purification. They observed sacred laws and spread across the earth. All of this is verifiable through archaeology and linguistics. Tracing the priestly lines requires systematic study of the Bible, since it is an account of the ancient Afro-Asiatic ruler-priests.

We are able to verify that the Bible is the account of Jesus' Afro-Asiatic ancestors by applying kinship analysis to the geneologies found in Genesis.
Here's an article that might help: New Genealogy: It's Not Just for Kinship Anymore

Also, Prof. Franklin at LSE has done innovative work on kinship, biology and genealogy, including her recent book: Dolly Mixtures: The remaking of genealogy (2007).
