DOVID-LEYB SHRENTSEL (b. July 13, 1895)
He was born in Zlatshev (Zolochiv), Galicia, the son of Emanuel Goldshmid. Until age ten he attended religious elementary school, later a middle school. He served in the Austrian army. He was active in the Labor Zionist party and wrote for party organs. He published a booklet Oysn hartsen (From the heart), poems of youth (Zolochiv: Kesher, 1918), 32 pp. Dov Sadan states that it had to be included in an anthology of Yiddish literature in Galicia. “Arye” Shrentsel was the author of Der kos (The cup) (Warsaw, 1931); this may be the same author.
Sources: Zalmen Reyzen, Leksikon, vol. 4; catalogue of “Kult-bukh” (Warsaw, 1934).
 This birthdate follows Zalmen Reyzen; Pinkhes galitsye (Records of Galicia), p. 258, gives a date of October 1877.
Is there a way to contact you? I am working on a Digital Humanities project looking at networks that involve a lot of the individuals you have written about in this blog (Jewish emigrants to USA around turn of the 20th Century) that I think you might be able to help with.
