Hamburg was occupied by France and from 1811-1815 civil registration was mandatory. This procedure was not followed from 1815-1866. From 1866 on vital records were established in Hamburg.


Vital records will be issued by the Standesamt (civil registration office) if a lawful or justified reason is at hand, such as family history. Here is a link explaining how to obtain in general a civil registration record from Germany:
