The 1920 Census is fully indexed and has been for New Jersey for some time.
Where were they in that census? If at that address... I know that
enumeration districts change between censuses, but if they were at the same
address the ward usually doesn't change. You can't be positive of that, but
the odds are against a change. So if need be check each enumeration
district in that ward. Try to find the address on a map, and hope the names
and numbers haven't changed. Depending on how good the description of the
enumeration districts are you might be able to narrow the number of
enum.dist. you need to look in.
