The original question was about existence of death certificates in 1890s.
The follow up was about ARCHIVES which is in Salem. The State Archives
has the original death certificates up to 1956. State Vital Statistics
office does not have them. The yearly batch is transferred from there to
Archives prior to the start of the following year, per law.
Nothing was asked about going to State Vital Statistics office.
