3. Turin's sister, Urwen, died before his other sister, Nienor was born.
The second one is a lie. Anglachel was given to Beleg Cuthalion by King Thingol, but in a tragic turn of events, Turin slew Beleg with his own sword, thus leading him to keep it, until it was reforged in Nargothrond as Gurthang.

I would say that Anglachel wasn't Turin's sword, but Beleg's. Turin merely kept it, and used it, but it became his own when it became Gurthang.
