Elmo is an "Elf of Doriath, younger brother of Elwë (Thingol) and Olwë of Alqualondë; according to one account grandfather of Celeborn." (Unfinished Tales, Index)

Celeborn was "the grandson of Thingol's brother Elmo - a shadowy figure about whom nothing is told save that he was the younger brother of Elwë (Thingol) and Olwë, and was 'beloved of Elwë with whom he remained'." (Unfinished Tales, History of Galadriel and Celeborn)


Brief Geneology of Elmo's descendents (Unfinished Tales, The Silmarillion), who were intertwined with Elwë and Olwë's descendents:

Elmo had a son, Galaon. Galaon had two sons, Galathil and Celeborn.

Celeborn wed Galadriel and their daughter was Celebrian. Celebrian wed Elrond.

(Galadriel's parents were Eärwen and Finfarfin; Eärwen was granddaughter to Olwë.)

Galathil's daughter was Nimloth of Doriath, who wed Dior Thingol's Heir. Dior and Nimloth's daughter was Elwing, who wed Eärendil. Elwing and Eärendil's children were Elrond and Elros.

(Dior's parents were Beren and Lúthien; Lúthien's parents were Elwë (Thingol) and Melian.)

Elros chose to be of the race of Man and founded the line from which Aragorn (Elessar) is descended.

Elrond married Celebrian and they had three children: Elladan, Elrohir, and Arwen.

Arwen married Aragorn, who was descended from Elros. They had a son, Eldarion, and three daughters.
