Re: Aragorn related to Elros/Elrond - how?
Perhaps Tolkien does put too much influence on lineages etc., or perhaps Tolkien's characters put too much influence on lineages. Well, Legolas does seem to think it is important that Aragorn is a descendant of Luthien and has that Elf-strain in his blood, and his son is certainly related to pretty much all the main actors in the History of Arda (incarnates that is) and I guess that "ties it up" nicely.
