Yes. This would be the way to go about it. Since you say that the unclaimed money is from NJ, check w/their State Treasurer's Office. Unclaimed money is a common thing in any state, so you may very well have some. It's worth a try.
However, I think you are right to be wary of a non-govermental entity giving you this info. I'd circumvent them altogethor and just check w/the NJ Treasurer's office. The worse thing that could happen is that they find none.
Good Luck. I hope you do have some money owed to you!
On edit: Whoops. It looks as though I may be confusing your post w/DF's just above this one... Anyway, in whatever state you may be talking about, I'd still go ahead and check w/their treasurer's office.
