Hi Gabba ,

Do you have his mother's name ?
Perth is in the County of Perthshire not Angus
No George Watson birth registered in Perthshire in 1905  ???

http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

3 born in Angus in 1905
The 1911 Census is online

Scotlandspeople has 3 George Watson's born in 1905 Angus(or Forfarshire in old money)
1 in St. Andrew
1 in St. Mary
1 in St. Clement
1 in St. Peter
(All districts of Dundee)

I make that 4  ::)

1911 Census has George Watson age 5 , second person first name George , living St Andrew Dundee

Not an easy name to research  :(

I think the only way to identify George is to look at those 4 birth certificates and hope that his birth
date of 23rd May 1905 is accurate , and father is George  :-\

Not sure why 3 George Watson's are showing born 1905 Angus yet 4 showing born in districts of Dundee  ???
