Concern over personal information after googling.

I googled someone I've been dating for almost 3 weeks and discovered that they had a sibling die in a work related accident just over a year ago. Now I feel I have deeply personal and traumatic information about them without it having been given freely and not sure what to do with it.

It's creating an odd conversation dynamic where when they mention their sibling (as in "My sibling and I had a great time at Disney World when we were kids") I don't feel comfortable telling them I know their sibling recently died, but I certainly can't ask them questions about their sibling as if I don't know (feels weird, I'm a horrible actor).
I'm not sure how to proceed, should I let them know I know? And how would I do that?
