The Bundesbote-Kalender was published by the General Conference Mennonite Church annually 1886-1947. In content and appearance it was very similar to other German almanacs published in America. It usually carried a calendar page for each month, some religious stories, biographies of Mennonite leaders, and events and chapters from Mennonite history everywhere. Much valuable biographical and historical information has been accumulated on the pages of the Bundesbote-Kalender. S. F. Sprunger and C. E. Krehbiel were among its editors. In 1947 when the conference paper, Christlicher Bundesbote, was merged with Der Bote, the title of the Bundesbote-Kalender was changed to Mennonitisches Jahrbuch which appeared for the first time under the new name in 1948.
