No but they're from 10 and 20 years ago. I'm not sure what papers they were posted in.

Usually they are kept in online archives. If its an older one, before the archives start, you can most likely find them at the local library of the town where the deceased lived, or you could contact the newspapers in the town where they lived.

Can't you just Google the name a death date?

Depends where you live.  By us I can go to the local paper online.  Under obituaries.  You can search a death up to I can't remember how many years back.  I think at least 10.  That might be your first start.

What exactly are you looking for? An ancestor?
