From the Poland Project Notables:
Your profile has a private family tree, so I can't see any connections on it, but if you are related to some of the Fulkerson profiles you manage, you should be related to John Paul II within about 40 steps. Fulkerson-893 and Fulkerson-622 both have connection paths of 36 steps, for example.
Actually, you have a connection path of 43 steps, Susie.
I've been working toward reducing path lengths by adding family (and sources) for some of the people I've seen on connection paths to Eve Curie.
So far my main contribution was to create Eliphalet Nott and make connections from him to two sets of [duplicate] profiles for his parents. Eliphalet's daughter is "only" 21 steps from John Paul II, and his parents (whose profiles have fairly short paths to the other connection targets) were more than 30 steps away from the Pope, so I expect that inserting Eliphalet should decrease some people's connection paths to John Paul II.
