Good Luck from a successful investor, Bill
In Minnesota the vast majority of foreclosures take place through a process called foreclosure by advertisement. In these cases a property must be advertised in a local newspaper for 6 weeks prior to the foreclosure sale. I will echo that you will want the help of a real estate pro here, but if you want to do the core research it will start in these publications. Finance and Commerce (newspaper) is a decent source for Minneapolis foreclosures. There are also websites and services that take this information from the local papers and put it online - you might also check them out.
Truly your best source for foreclosure info is a good realtor that's seasoned in the foreclosure area.
Should you need further help or have other questions, don't hesitate to ask!
Thanks, Todd Norsted

There are many sites out there that have foreclosure data and resources. The problem is taking that information and turning it into knowledge. An agent that works this market daily will have all the tools and information you need but will also have the knowledge and experience to make the best use of it. Just because it is a foreclosure does not mean it is a good deal!
