Tzum (Tjum), a village in Friesland, Netherlands (coordinates: 53° 9′ 28″ N, 5° 33′ 52″ E), where Elder Leenaert Bouwens baptized four persons in 1563-65, and another 15 persons ca. 1570. A Mennonite congregation of Tzum is, however, not known; the newly baptized may have joined some neighboring congregations like Blessum or Arum.
