They verify that the person signing the document is who they claim to be, by checking a photo identification, and that they understand what they are signing, and are not being forced to sign it. After they sign it, they sign, stamp (or seal) it.

A Notary can also do some other tasks that aren’t as common as notarizing a document. They can also certify a copy of an original document. They either write a certification and sign the copy of the document, or attach a separate certification page, after witnessing it being copied. They can also administer an oath or affirmation. This means that the Notary is the witness to the person making the oath or affirmation. A notary will ask the person making the oath or affirmation to raise his hand as they do in court and speak the oath as it is written or required by whichever body wrote it. In some jurisdictions, they can also perform weddings!
