Research Tips

See the Village of Riverdale history page and the entry for Riverdale in the Encyclopedia of Chicago for a brief history with some surnames.

The Village of Riverdale falls partly in Thornton Township and partly in Calumet township so censuses for both areas should be checked; also an area called Riverdale falls within the southernmost part of the city of Chicago (annexed by the city from the village before 1900) and censuses for that area (Ward 34, Dist 1122 in 1900) should also be checked. See A Look at Cook for very helpful maps and descriptions of Cook County census enumeration districts for the 1870 through 1930 censuses.
