3kingdoms has been down for many years. You can still access many of the biographies through the waybackmachine. No reason to remove those links.
Threestatesrecords is still up and running. The site is perfectly fine. If links from here don't work, those links would need to be fixed here. Everything on the other site is functional.

The Threestatesrecords linking is complicated, James has to manually alter each one's coding in encyclopaedia to get them to work

If the links are dead for good it may be better to remove them unfortunately.

Yeah, those websites are long dead. Sometimes you can find the old biography by copying the link and heading over to the WayBack Machine online. And you're right that we should do something to clean them up. Probably we should find working links to something like the WayBack Machine archive copy, where possible, and link to that.

I encountered errors in the Submission forms on this page:

(The General Email Form and Report Errors gave me a validation code error and the Submission Form said something about the URL not being available)

I'm not sure if it's my system but I did try two browsers (Chrome and IE). I can provide more details if needed.

p.s. I am so grateful that this site exists with such good material!
