Hello from newbie!

Hi to everyone out here! I have just joined this site in hopes of finding more about my great great grandparents and more about where they came from which will, I hope turn into a trip back to Scotland to see for myself where they came from.
I am at a roadblock once my research got back to Scotland, as records are more difficult for me to find there. If anyone out here can help I would be much appreciative!

James Kennedy and Margaret Martin Walker Kennedy married in Old Monkland Parrish in 1851/52? James was a puddler at Calderbank Works. I believe they left Scotland in 1868 on the Arcadia bound for the US.
I have different census info for Margaret's birth but family record shows 1831-11-22 and James was born in Ireland and I don't know when he went to Scotland.
Happy to be here and hope to find some clues :)
