Continuation of breaking down a brick wall

Journal by jen2

Sorry I never finished the journal but here it is.

After trying for months to find births of great grandparents I am at my wits end. I am even thinking of giving up.

Great Grandmother Mary MCKENNA born Glasgow Scotland in 1855 to parents Alexander MCKENNA and Mary Anne COPELAND, I cannot find her birth, or immigration record on her arrival to Australia.

As stated before the earliest record of have of her is a marriage in Australia in 1876.

I have been in contact with Queensland State Archives and Scotland CSG Archives and they have been unable to help me.

Have found 2 Birth Records for Mary MCKENNA in 1855 - District Calton,
City Glasgow, County Lanark and the other District Milton,with same city and county as the first.

Another birth in 1856 District Clyde, City Glasgow, County Lanark.

Apart from paying for all 3 Certificates to see if any of these are the one I am looking for I do not know how to find her birth.
