I added this data to another group but I am adding it here as well. http://wwww.seekingmichigan.org
is a free site from the Library of Michigan for death records from 1897 to 1920 with the actual documents available and for printing.
Be aware the extractions are not the best; names are mis-spelled but you can search by county, year, first name or surname and more. Just be really aware if you type in Smith and you don't find it to try other methods of searching.

This is the short cut directly to 'records' you can select and then fill the form out and select the county, state, country.. start typing in the word of the city, county pause for a second and it will auto-fill with the different states etc the town you are looking for is it and you select the one you want to search from the list you are given. But do pause a second or it will say: no town by that name or some such thing... sorry I accidently deleted a message in my 'not knowing what I am doing yet' part of GenWise life! ;) this is 1897-1920 .There are also misc birth; census; military records here. I am referring all to MI but there are other states you can try.
Do a google search for Gendis death records
These are records from 1867-1897 not originals but extractions. Ask if there are things I didn't make clear.
