I just upgraded to a new Mac Mini. On my old MacPro I had a folder in the Documents folder called "Desktop Pictures" which was connected to the desktop pictures in System Preferences. It contained all of my choices. They are all jpg. That connection has been broken.

How do I tell Desktop Pictures in the System Preferences to, once again, point to that folder in my documents folder?

In Desktop preference pane, click on the plus arrow (bottom left in my screen shot) and navigate to your folder in the dropdown menu:
