          I don't know just how far back they go - or if the dates vary by country - but I _do_ know at least some Consular records exist much further back than the 1920s. A friend's mother was born to US citisens abroad, in Australia, in the 1920s. And she has a birth certificate issued from these Consular records of that birth. And I've seen references that _suggest_ to me that consulates were active in many countries - and involved in recording the affairs of US citisens - at least some decades earlier than that.
          Of course, another question would be just how _complete_ are these records? If the death was not reported to the consulate, then all bets would be off.
