I  just found out that I am no longer connected to several well knowns in the Global Connections including Winston Churchill-4 and Paul Revere-1 How does this change? Is there a spot in the site that shows all of the well known people that has been showcased in the Connections? Thanks for the help.

Every week there's a new profile of the week and a new member of the week, and the previous week's connection data goes away.

I think the blog archives would show you who some of the past connection targets were.

I thought that you could compare anyone in the global connections
Yes, you can compare any two people in Connection Finder, but you will only see a connection if they are 10 steps apart, or less.

And you can find connections with 4 connection targets: Kevin Bacon, Queen Elizabeth and two people of the week.
 Those last two are temporary -- they are up for only one week. After that week, the connections to those people are no longer available,  unless they are 10 steps or less.
We've been told that the server load for checking connections is large, so Wikitree doesn't support real-time checking for long connection paths. The paths to the 4 target people are calculated in a batch process and saved.
