Hi Mike,

You can reference them both from a single index sitemap. See

So you could hand create the index sitemap, add references to your two
individuals ones, and they can continue to be updated automatically.

Submit the index sitemap to the search engines. (Though I should point out
that at least Google Webmaster Tools allows you to submit multiple sitemaps
