Hi I found an index of a relative death certificate. But the actual book with certificates isn’t there. Is there any way to access this? I’m searching in Latin America.
FamilySearch's holdings, vast as they are, are nowhere near complete.
It looks to me like the death registers for Comasagua are only available up to 1927 (https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/102740); after that, the list of names is all there is on FS. You can tell from it that José Maria Solis died sometime in the second half of 1939, as his register entry is number 95 on page 115, and the last one for the year is number 111 on page 122. You may be able to use this information to request a copy or extract from the civil registration authority in El Salvador, but I don't know anything about genealogy research in that country.
Can you tell us the specific record? The URL or the name of the recordset? Some records are not viewable from home. Some are only viewable at a Family History Center or Library. Many can be ordered, free, from the Remote Lookup Service.
It's difficult to answer specifically without more details.

Thank you for your response! Here’s the link page 168 José Maria Solis
Those documents were filmed in 1977, according to the title slide: https://is.gd/dM6ElD
There was a civil war in El Salvador beginning in the late 1970s and lasting some 12 years. Further filming of later records would certainly have been more difficult if not impossible in that time.
