Our family name appeared in official documents in 15th century when 140 bowmen (soldiers) were assigned to Kainuu by the King of Sweden. Nowadays most Haataja Family members live in communities round Lake Oulujarvi in Oulu county such as Kajaani, Vuolijoki (currently part of Kajaani), Saraisniemi, Vaala and Paltamo. Many of Haataja Family members live also in communities nearby such as Kuusamo, Pyhanta, Piippola and Kestila.
