Every state has an office of vital statistics usually located within the Dept of Human Services or Human Welfare.
Each state usually has an on-line form you fill out and a fee to issue a copy of the death certificate.

I like to mail in the form with a check & personal id--if you do it on-line there is an additional fee. States started keeping death certificates about 1900-1910. Before that, there were county records in some states.

The death certificate usually gives date of birth & location, date of death & location, parents, spouse, occupation, and place of burial. Some states issue an
information copy of the death certificate for genealogy purposes.
