Doopsgezind Jaarboekje is a yearbook published by the Dutch Mennonites since 1902. In contrast to the more scholarly Doopsgezinde Bijdragen, it presents a more popular type of reading matter of interest to the Mennonites of Holland. For many years it had a devotional paragraph every Sunday and holiday, followed by a biographical sketch of some person of note in the Mennonite world. Besides this it contained poetry and prose of stimulating and instructional nature and articles on current affairs. More recently it has become primarily a directory of Dutch Mennonite churches, along with obituaries and articles on Mennonite-related topics.
Its founder and first editor was A. Binnerts Sz. in Haarlem. Binnerts was the editor 1902-1926. He was followed by J. Wuite, 1927-1931, and S. H. N. Gorter, 1932-1943. The Jaarboekje appeared annually 1902-1943, when it had to cease publication by order of the German occupation authorities. Since 1949 it has been published by the Algemene Doopsgezinde Sociëteit. In 2006 it was edited by Mw. J. D. Groenveld-Kiestra and A. A. Thimm.
