I seem to have hit a dead-end and would appreciate any help with the parents of Christina Margaretha Dorothea Luthke (or Leuthke) b.1792 in (I think) Genin Lubek Germany who married Johann Heinrich Andreas Dechow in Nov. 1814.

It would be helpful to know what documents you already have, saves doing things twice :)

I have details of Christinas birth in Genren Lubek Germany, death in Grevesmuhlen Mecklenburg Schwerin Germany, and Johann's birth. Their marriage, and their children's birth/deaths but its their parents where I'm stuck.

I was hoping for Christina's father's name to be included in her birth or marriage details, as a starting point but no luck there
