Not sure about your state but a certified copy of your deed here is a copy obtained from the registry of deeds that has been certified by the registrar as being a true copy there is a small fee for this certification.
it also crossed my mind that perhaps you do not have possesion of your original deed? Here the original is returned to the closing attorney following its recording at the registry of deeds. The closing attorney should then forward the recorded original to you although some simply place it in the closing file for safe keeping. If its not in your possesion ask the closing attorney.
