Need help in finding parents for Wilhelm Nitschke Born August 8, 1817 in Strigau, Prussia

I am researching my better half's family and have been at a lost at finding Wilhelm Nitschke's parents.  If anyone can help, I will be eternally grateful.

I'm not sure if these'll be any help - likely too far back (by a couple centuries!), too far afield (Saxony, near the Czech Republic), and just a similarity of names (no "K"):

Maria Nitzsche (1611-1688), daughter of Matthes Nitzsche and Anna ____: married Johannes Schumann (1616-1678) on 10/11/1640 in Reinhardtsgrimma.

Anna NItzsche (died 1620), daughter of Erasmus Nitzsche, and widow of Andreas Schreier (born ~1555, died before 1605): married Franz Brehm (1584-1621) on 6/10/1605 in Schneeberg.

...courtesy of our late family genealogist. Keep hunting; cheers!

Kind regards, Michael Meurer

Thank you for this information as it may be useful in the future.  There are so many Nitschke families, that I need to be sure by obtaining a birth record for Wilhlem with his parents names.  This way I can be sure of the correct lineage I am researching.

Striegau is today Strzegom in the Lower Silesian Voivodeship of Poland. Church books from the formerly German areas now in Poland are kept by the State and various Regional Archives in Poland. Here are some on-line sources (unfortunately mostly in Polish):

The link http://www.geneteka.genealodzy.pl/ is great as you have the English flag for translation.  The Nitschke s listed are mid 1800's and I am looking for 1817.  The other sites are too complicated for a non Polish speaking person like me.  But will keep on looking. Thank you for replying.
