Move or remove unusable sources?

I found a birth record for Geneva Lane.  When I tried to add it to her profile it got lost in four references that are no longer
available.  I moved them to a see also category.  Before I try to reenter her birth record so it is readable, and delete the numbered recorded sources that I have moved, does anyone have any opinions on how I handled this?

You were missing a </ref> tag, but if the source for the birth is not the correct one, just erase it and enter the correct one between the <ref> and </ref> tags.

If you want to replace the broken references with a working one, it is:

"Pedigree Resource File," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/2:2:3QWV-C8V : accessed 10 August 2020), entry for Geneva Alzora /Lane/; "Miners and farmers from Germany and Wales to the Penn and Ohio" file (2:2:2:MMD8-KJ8), submitted 19 May 2014 by johnsteMBS98 [identity withheld for privacy].

Spaces below just to post answer

You don't need < ref > under the < references tag

Since everything in each of those is the same you can just add it to the bulleted item Source: < span id='S2' >S2 </ span > Abbreviation:  Family Search Title:  Database and images. Publication:  https://familysearch.org/search/record/results/.

Once you get that done, you might want to replace each of the span with an inline < ref > with the content of the bulleted item after the ending span tag. But then you want a named ref for ones used more than once. Let me know if you would like an example, or take a look at my great grandmother https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Whiting-2417
