Galician Military Records #galicia

Does anyone have experience in sifting though these records? I am looking for my great-grandfather, Szulim Nemeth, born in Mariampol, Galicia in 1857. He was drafted into the army around 1877 in Stanislawow and served 10 years in the 58th Infantry Regiment and another 2 years in the 62nd Landwehr. He was discharged in Stanislawow.

I was hoping that with all this information I would be able to find him but the records are not well organized. If anyone is familiar with this collection, I would greatly appreciate your insight.

Thanks for shedding light on these records. It turns out the records are digitized ( but not indexed) on FamilySearch.  The records are not very well organized, but are accessible. Here is a link to the records:

I came across this posting from American Ancestors regarding military records for Galicia (1865-1918):

This is the first such record that I've seen.  Looks like a local researcher would be required.
