Best Answer

In an early 2005 [I can't remember exactly what month]issue of Chicago magazine there is an article detailing all the old "grand" Chicago families and what they are up to now. It's kinda interesting. Be assured that they are all still rich. You need to better define "old families." There are many, many, descendants of early Chicagoans, but not all bear the last name of their ancestors. Most of them are NOT rich. How far back do you want to go, and why? The Chicago Genealogical Society used to have a "pioneers" roster list I think -- people who trace ancestors back before a certain date in Chicago.
