Capacitors wired in parallel give the sum of their respective capacities.
Both have to have the same voltage rating.
Capacitors are only wired in series if one wants them to withstand a higher than the rated voltage of each capacitor.
Doesn't make sense, normally.
10-02: I forgot to mention that the total capacity in this case is C1*C2/(C1+C2) with Cx( x =1,2) being the value of the individual capacitors, and less than the smallest Cx value.
