Find a Notary

Need to locate a Minnesota Notary Public or find a notary in your area? Click on Find a Notary to search for notary information online.

The search logic used is a full text search. A full text search that finds matches on a complete word or phrase entered. This is not a ‘contains’ type search. Example: Steph will not return results for Stephanie.

The By Name or Commission Number field allows you to search for:

  • First and Last Name of a Notary
  • Business Name
  • Commission Number

Results will only provide inactive notary records when ‘Include Inactive’ has been checked.

The search makes no distinction on which fields are searched and the order of words does not impact results. For example, the input of ‘Bill Johnson’ does not assume that Bill or Johnson is either first name, last name or business name. The search will match on the first name field that equals ‘Bill’ or ‘Johnson’, or the last name field that equals ‘Bill’ or ‘Johnson’, or the business name field that equals ‘Bill’ or ‘Johnson’.

Plural forms of words are ignored in the input and in the output. The ‘s’ for example is dropped when searching for ‘Meyers’ and will match on ‘Meyer’ and ‘Meyers’. These same results are also returned when searching for ‘Meyer’.

Search results are limited to 500 records found.

You may search for notaries in a specific city or county, or refine your search results by:

  • entering a specific city
  • selecting a specific county from a drop down list
  • limiting your search to only include active notaries

Former Names = indicated with an asterisk
City = will display city equivalencies, i.e. Mpls and Minneapolis
County = select from county drop down list of options
