Edwin, the usual procedure is this:

Let A be the older sequence and B the newer one.

Merge A and B into A

Recycle B (edit internal format, replace all
the lines with a single line saying
%K recycled

Add a line to the Deleted sequences web page in the OEIS wiki

Finally, go to B, look at the "refs" tab,
change all occurrences of B to A

All this assumes B is a new entry. If A and B have
both been in the OEIS a long time, we would
mark B as "dead" rather than recycling it.

 Best regards
