The mutual fund portion of the merger between Boston's two biggest banks - BankBoston N.A. and Fleet Financial Group - is falling into place.

The Boston 1784 Funds, BankBoston's old fund group, will be merged into Fleet's Galaxy Funds if shareholders approve the proposal at a meeting scheduled for April 28. The new Fleet Boston Corp.'s money management group has proposed integrating the 17 BankBoston funds into the more than 30 funds that make up Fleet's Galaxy Funds group, according to a combined registration and proxy statement the Galaxy Fund filed with the SEC Feb. 7.
