"Concerning ... The Hoard" and "Kinship of the Half-elven" refers to a manuscript by J.R.R. Tolkien, enclosed by him in a 1964 letter to Eileen Elgar.

The manuscript, consisting of nine pages, gives an outline of 'The Silmarillion' by relating his poem 'The Hoard' to this still unpublished work, and includes a family tree illustrating the 'Kinship of the Half-elven' (so entitled).

The genealogical chart was reproduced in Sotheby's English Literature and English History 6-7 December 1984 (the letter and manuscript were sold on 6 December 1984 at Sotheby's, London), and in Beyond Bree May 1985.
