merging branches

I have project 'Prod' file 'F1' with 5 items in its history.  I have the same file in project 'Rel2' with 3 items in its history.  What I need to do is to collaps my 'Rel2' file 'F1' onto the 'Prod' project file 'F1' and have it contain all the history in 'Prod' project file 'F1' as well as 'Rel2' project file 'F1'.  Project 'Rel2' file 'F1' was a branch of project 'Prod' file 'F1'.  As I create releases (Relx projects), modify, test and implement them, I need to collaps the contents back into project 'Prod' and have it carry over all the history that it contained in the branch (Relx).

Can someone help please?  Thanks much.

RE: merging branches

Don't think you can merge them and keep both histories.  Whenever we take branches we merge changes into both the current dev branch and the release_X branch.
