That is correct Lindo. Though there is a closer connection than that.

Sador -> Hurin -> Turgon -> Idril

Hurin and Huor both served Turgon and was brought to his Kingdom by Thronodor the Eagle when they were children.

Question

Perhaps it is too hard?
Hint: the Lossoth are the Snow-men who live near the Ice Bay of Forochel, I believe.

Cheif of the Lossoth --> Arvedui --> Aranarth --> Cirdan

It looked hard, but when I looked where I knew I had seen something about arvedui, it was all on one page in the App. A of the RotK.

Beor-Elwe-Turin-Glaurung

Beor led his people to Beleriand, where he (it is assumed) got permission to settle from Elwe, who helped Turin, who slew Glaurung.

Beor-Finrod-Turgon-Turin-Glaurung

That one makes more sense, Beor served Finrod, who was friends with Turgon, whom Turin came to when he came to Gondolin,and Turin slew Glaurung!

But Turin never went to Gondolin. I think it is:

Beor-> Finrod-> Beren-> Thingol-> Turin -> Glaurung

And a very good one at that!
I'll take it, but a safer route would be:
Vaire-> Mandos-> Manwe-> Gandalf and so on because while Aule and Gandalf most likely did know each other, it was Manwe who nominated Gandalf (Olorin) to go to Middle Earth as an Istari, so I would have done that, but you are correct anyways.
