In looking at the 1920 Census images for Bayonne NJ, Hudson County
available on line at Ancestry
I see that there are hand written 3 digit numbers that appear in the
right hand margin of some lines. The numbers seem to be some kind of
coding since they are not sequential and some numbers repeat. Examples
are 999, 757, 791, etc.
Can anyone on the list shed any light on these numbers?
