Elrond and Glamdring Can't Post

Does anyone else find it curious that when giving the histories of Orcrist and Glamdring, Elrond does not mention that Glamdring belonged to his grandfather? It is undoubtedly true that Tolkien didn't have the connection in mind when he wrote TH, but it might have been fun if this tidbit had been included in the screenplay.

That gives rise to another question: since Glamdring is an heirloom of his house why is Elrond so uninterested in recovering it?
