My grandfather who was illegitimate has two birth entries in Swedish church records. The one is a normal birth certificate that contains all the information except his mother used a fictitious name. The other is a household record where the correct mothers name is used and the birth information is included as comments. How do I best use both in RM 7?
How to enter multiple birth records for the same person

I only link the Birth fact once.
The date and place are the date and place from the best source(s).
I would transcribe the data from both sources in the note along with an explanation of the mother's false name in the one source.
I would link a source for each of the sources to the one Birth fact.
