In Germany death certificates as well as any other information regarding the birth, marriage, divorces, etc. of a person are recorded ONLY by the "Standesamt". Documents regarding any of the above information are also issued ONLY by the "Standesamt"

    My birth, marriage, two kids, (sadly) deaths in the family...

I did a Google search for "department of human resources" + "death certificate" and the following website as well as others gives an inkling of what this HR Dept. could be in your context provided the death certificate was made out in the US
Information gained from the Georgia Death Index varies with the year, with more information given in the later years. At the very least, the name, the exact date of death, the county of death, and the death certificate number will be given. Sometimes, the age in years at the time of death and the primary county of residence are given. To obtain a copy of the actual death certificate, you can order it directly from Vital Records at the Georgia Department of Human Resources by sending a money order (personal checks not accepted) for $10 to:

Vital Records Unit
Georgia Department of Human Resources
Room 217-H, 47 Trinity Avenue
Atlanta, GA 30334

And the German reference:

Das Standesamt informiert


Damit bekommen Sie eine Sterbeurkunde von uns
