While digging through your [[Special:Notifications]] page may be possible, it
is entirely impractical to expect to be able to find a notification even a
month ago when you receive dozens of mentions and talk page notifications
daily.  Don't forget that the notifications page only loads a few results at a
time and you have to actively click on "show more" to get the next chunk.  That
means if you average 15 notifications a day, this is a few clicks to load each
day's notifications and if you want something that was a month back, likely 100
or more clicks to get back that far.  It should simply be available in the log
which offers at least some filtering so you can show results that were in or
before month of year.
