Stanczyk noticed yesterday (18-JUNE-2014) that Metryki.genebaza.pl had some additions. The Polish Archive from Gdansk (AP_GDANSK) was added to Genbaza.pl late on Wednesday.
So now when you click on the above link, you should see:
The top archive, AD_Kielce, is a Diocessan archive, the church archive from Kielce Diocese (Stanczyk’s ancestral diocese).
The new archive is second in this list, AP_GDANSK. The church archive and the bottom four archives were already there.
If you click on the AP_GDANSK, then you will see five research collections (aka fonds). One is an evangelical parish from Krokowa and there are also four USC (civil registration offices, similar to the USA’s county clerk) fonds with vital records.
I looked at two of the USCs (Sopot – a very nice resort town on the Baltic and Kamienica Szlachecka). Their data started at year 1874 and each link was either a Birth or a Marriage or a Death metrical book. Each vital record type was a separate unit. So you had three units per year. My early searches did not locate any alegata in 1874 Sopot.
As you may have surmised this is Prussian-Poland partition data and as such is in the common German long-form birth (or marriage or death) certificates (not the Napoleonic Codex paragraph form of Russian-Poland nor the Latin Box format so prevalent in Austrian-Poland partitions. The form’s text are in German. The first birth record I saw was in 1874 Kamienica Szlachecka Births (#1), was Otto August Carl Mark (son of Ferdinand Mark & Amalie Mark nee Gohrbanet).
