I am trying to figure out a way to include both, but having a hard time doing so...
I can't help you with the Mill's books, as I'm not familiar with those, but I did just discover that the Famous Men books are available on Librivox. We have listened to portions of the Middle Ages one and have been happy enough with the narrator. Maybe you could listen to those and read the others?

If you do a search on here for Renaissance and Reformation Times/ Dorothy Mills another mom has put together a pretty extensive guide for using that book. Of course, that doesn't address your question of using the two together, but if you're in the Ren and Ref. era it looks like a good resource.

I like the Famous Men series, but I tend to use them as a reference more than a curriculum, but this is just how it works best for me. I like to use them as a good biography resource if I need to further expand on a particular person.
I am possibly going to start The Book of the Ancient World soon and will follow this with The Book of the Ancient Romans and The Middle Ages.
