If you are doing client work you would always be charging your clients for
your expenses and time whether that time includes use of your Ancestry
subscription to locate data or not.
I've had occasions where finding something on Ancestry saved me the time
and trouble of spending hours in the courthouse or historical society
library. So, in some cases using Ancestry may well save your client rather than
add to the charges.

On the other hand, professionals who use Ancestry will have to increase
their client fees in order to pay Ancestry. I guess those of us who won’t be
raising our fees will have an advantage in the marketplace.
