Both Bromberg and Briesen (your other post) have civil vital records from Oct. 1, 1874 (when the modern German Standesamt system was instituted) onward. The books from up until about 100 years ago are in the Polish State archives: Bromberg records in the Bydgoszcz archive, Briesen records in Torun (used to be Thorn). More recent volumes are usually kept in the civil registry office (now called Urzad Stanu Cywilnego) in the town of origin.
The records from 1874-1883 for both towns are available on LDS microfilms, too.
I am researching my COHN family. My great-grandfather, Adolph Max Cohn, came from Bromberg, (Germany), now Bydgoszcz (Poland). Does anyone know if there still exist archives of births, deaths, marriages, burials and so forth from the late 1800's in this town, or were they all destroyed in WWII and the aftermath?---
