I was lucky that I did, I really enjoy searching Scotlands People.

The Common Room / Re: Research in Scotland

Scottish records are good because they included far details than those for England and Wales. The Scotlands People site lets you search just generally, or narrow it down to between specific years and areas. When looking for children I look between the age of the mother on marriage and 45, children are often given middle names related to their mother's/ grandmother's maiden names and this can help. Female deaths are even better because they are registered under both the birth surname and the married surname which can really narrow your search down. Plus to do all that is free.

Thorax does fit and would explain why he was discharged wounded.

He seems to have a severe gun shot wound through something but I cannot think of anything that fits and also a slight wound to his arm.

Lanarkshire / Re: Baby Sinclair 1920/1930s

Hi,

Scotlands People has 55 Sinclair births between 1921 and 1940 in the Bridgeton area of Glasgow, the only one that stands out as a possible is John Brown Sinclair born 1930. To prove any of the 55 you would need to buy certificates due to there being born less than 100 years ago.

Of those births 31 are female.

I am sure many of us have found errors in other trees on Ancestry and sadly there will always be people who just blindly copy things without checking before adding it to their tree. Personally I have stopped pointing errors out because you rarely get a response even though I have offered to prove it.

The proper name was Sunnyside Nursing Home but searching on that just brings up entries for James Herriot. Alf Wright's children were born there in the early 1940s so it could have been around in 1919.
