Because of copyright issues, the actual obituaries cannot be on the site. Members instead create an index of citation information of the obituary in the following format: Name, age at death, location, periodical abbreviation, date of periodical publication, username of poster.

If you find your individual in the index, you can then Google search the periodical abbreviation to get the actual periodical. Then you can request the obituary from them as you'd have the name and publication date.
