For our XIII Puzzle Parley, I prepared and delivered a PowerPoint presentation titled: “Keeping Track of the Pieces: Organizing and Documenting Your Puzzles”. The presentation covered: creating a catalog page based primarily on the Anne Williams’ format; assigning each puzzle as acquired a number; registering a puzzle when received with basic information; completing the catalog page after assembly, repair, and photographing. Conrad then took over and showed how this information could be put into a Microsoft Access data bank which has enormous potential when searching for information or tracking puzzles. It was a complicated presentation and I am not confident everyone was able to follow along.
