The Haywood County Historical and Genealogical Society will meet on in March 30 in the dining hall of the First Baptist Church on Haywood Street in Waynesville.
Dinner will start at 6 p.m. followed by a program presented by Curtis Wood, emeritus professor of history at Western Carolina University, entitled “The Scotch-Irish Then and Now.”
Wood’s program will cover immigration of people from Scotland and Ireland who migrated to many parts of the Southeastern U.S. states, with the primary focus on Western North Carolina, and in particular, Haywood County.
The meetings are open to the public.
