The Mennonitisches Jahrbuch was a Russian Mennonite annual reviewing current Mennonite activities in the area of missions, charitable institutions, schools, and general church life. It was edited 1904-1911 by Heinrich Dirks, elder of the Gnadenfeld Mennonite Church (Molotschna settlement) and former missionary, then in 1913-1914 by D. H. Epp, under the authority of the Allgemeine Bundeskonferenz (Conference of Mennonites in Russia). Epp greatly enlarged and enriched it with numerous historical articles on Mennonite congregations, institutions, etc., in Russia together with the annual minutes of the conference sessions. The 1914 (10th) issue (for the year 1913) had 226 pages. This was the nearest approach to a scholarly or historical journal published by the Mennonites in Russia. The prohibition of German publications brought its career to an end.
