St Johns, Portugal Street, District of Gorbals, Glasgowby Chris
Using information from relatives, I was able to track down one of my ancestors using the Scotland's People site. My great grand aunt was married at this church in Glasgow.
I'm trying to find out more information about this parish, and whether it is possible to get access to an archive of their Register. I'd be primarily interested in the 1887 - 1920 timeframe.
However, it is my understanding that this parish was closed and demolished. I looked at the satellite photos on google maps, and don't see any buildings that look like a church. Portugal Street looks very short.
Any background would appreciated.
