Hi Dale,

One option would be to migrate as you have described, where three new repositories are created, and then just transfer those three additional repositories to a specific destination repository after the migration.

You can transfer an entire repository in the staff interface if you're logged in as a systems administrator.  The repository transfer process is documented in the ArchivesSpace Help Center (you'll need a Help Center account to access):

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Migration question

Good morning,

We are migrating an instance of archivist toolkit that contains 3 groups into Archives Space.  In our current instance of Archives Space we have two repositories.  Ideally, we would add the 3 groups under one of the repositories.  Test imports/conversions have gone well but 3 additional repositories are created in the process.  Has anyone determined a way to import archivist toolkit groups into a specific repository?
