          Birth and death records are state level records and with the exception of New England states, the majority of states did not start keeping birth and death records until the very late 19th C or early 20th C.   New England states kept town level records starting in the 17th C.  State laws very greatly as to which records are open to the public.  One of the best resources for knowing what records are available would be a familysearch wiki for the state you are interested.  To find the wiki just Google the states name familysearch wiki.
