Question: Can I search for family and other names that are in the obituary notice?

Answer: Yes.  Select the obituary database and enter the name in the 'Notes-1' search field.  NOTE: You do not have to select a database.

Question: My search resulted in a large number of records with the name or names in the obituaries I'm searching.   How can I search a displayed list of obituaries to find the name or names I'm looking for?

Answer: Most browsers have a Search feature. Use the browser help features for details. Please note that many broswers use COMMAND KEY + F to allow searching.
