Re: anyone have luck finding Austro-Hungarian military records?

If anyone lives near a LDS (Mormon) research center, you can get access to these military records but you have to go in person. They might politely give you a spiel about their church.
There are many centers around the world.
I read that many Polish records were destroyed during the destruction of Warsaw but on the off chance the Lviv archives retained the west Ukrainian records of Austrian soldiers (and were then photographed by the LDS), maybe they exist after all.

Just curious, has anyone found any online Austrian military records for pre-WW1 Podhajcers?
The online Mormon Church database seems to have them but you need some kind of special clearance
that their online representative was unable to give me.
I spoke to someone working at the Mormon Church in Vienna, Austria (where I live) and they said if I go to their
center they will give me access, but only onsite, where I assume I will be given a proselytizing spiel.
