Meyers Orts Gazetteer for German locations via Ancestry online

I have figured out how to access the Meyers Orts und Verkehrs Lexicon Gazetteer [online via Ancestry], which is used to locate & expand information on place names in 1912 Germany. Ancestry's version is quite clear, although it is in German script. Good practice for me, a beginning student of German.

After I find a location, and print out a copy, I can interpret the abbreviations fairly well with the help of Wendy Uncapher's and Larry Jensen's books. But they advise genealogists to also check Meyers' 3rd Volume for the same location. They say added information may exist in Vol. III for any location, possibly with some corrections.

Can anybody explain to me how, or even if, I can access Volume III, via Ancestry? If there is an explanation on the Ancestry site, I have not been able to find it.

Thanks for any suggestions, BG
