The Jaarboekje voor de Doopsgezinde Gemeenten in de Nederlanden (Yearbook of the Mennonite Congregations in the Netherlands), usually cited as Muller's Jaarboekje, was published by Samuel Muller at Amsterdam, first issue in 1837. In the foreword Muller explained that it was to be a new edition of the [[Naamlijst der tegenwoordig in dienst zijnde predikanten der Mennoniten in de Vereenigde Nederlanden|Naamlijst, ]]a list of European Mennonite congregations and their ministers, which at first had been published annually, then at longer intervals, the last issue being that of 1829. The new Jaarboekje, under the title "Doopsgezinde Mengelingen" (Miscellanies), presents an extremely valuable series of historical articles.
The second edition of the Jaarboekje appeared in 1840, covering the years 1838-39, and in addition to the lists and news of the congregations also contained valuable historical material, especially the articles by Leonhard Weydmann on the Palatinate. The third and last issue, for the years 1840-50, appeared late in 1850. Its principal contents were an extensive account of the history of theological instruction among the Dutch Mennonites, written by Muller.
