For about the last one hundred years in the US for everyone who dies there has been a death certificate recorded in the county courthouse of the county where that person died. In some states these are in the land records office, in others they are in the clerk of court's office. The coroner is a public official and his records as such are public records and ought to be open to inspection, except in unresolved criminal cases.
