Plett Foundation to encourage research and education about the groups of Mennonites who came to Canada in the 1870s including their ancestors and descendants. The Plett Foundation is a strong supporter of the Mennonite Heritage Archives.

- Mennonite Pioneer Mission Quarterly Index – coming soon
- The Mennonite Pioneer Mission was a program of the Bergthaler Church of Manitoba that began in 1945.
- Initially work was done in Mexico but due to visa issues they redirected their efforts to Northern Manitoba where some Mennonite young men had served as conscientious objectors in the Second World War. Mennonite Pioneer Mission Quarterly was the communication vehicle for the organization and was published from 1945-1961. In 1957 the Conference of Mennonites in Canada took over the agency. The publication carried reports from mission workers in communities such as Bloodvein, Cross Lake, Hole River, Hollow Water, Manigotogan, Matheson Island, Paungassi, Pine Dock as well as reporting on workers they were supporting in Congo and India.

Mennonitisches Juhrbuch Index
- Mennonitisches Juhrbuch, 1903-1913
- 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 pates. 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.
