Hi, my boyfriend and I are doing a video on historical markers and we were wanting to know 'do we need to
have a permit to document it for my boyfriend's youtube channel?'
please let me know if we do or don't.

Hi, Jamie.

What a great question and I don't have an an answer. I do know who does:
http://www.thc.state.tx.us/public/upload/forms/thc-historical-markers-factsheet.pdf

The Texas Historical Commission(THC) staff directory shows a Ms. Sarah McCleskey as Historian, over the
Historical Marker Program. Her contact Tel. is (512) 463-4149. I also located an email address which is
probably hers.  markers@thc.state.tx.us

She has another concealed type email address on the staff directory page. I emailed your question to her and
will be happy to post her response, on our site, as soon as she replies. You are certainly free to contact her
if you wish.  http://www.thc.state.tx.us/about/contact/staff-directory

Thank you for your concern over what might be considered some sort of THC "rights". Writing on behalf of the
Milam County Historical Commission, we're glad to see both of you taking an interest in our Historical Markers
and rich Texas history.

Respectfully,
Jack Brooks

I don't think so either, Jerry, but I'll call THC tomorrow and see.†

Hi Mr. Brooks,

Thank you for your email.  There is no fee to use markers in print or electronic materials as long as
the producer/writer/director credit their sources for information and images.  If they take the
images themselves, THC has no authority over the image rights.  We do, however, ask that the marker design not
be duplicated (other signs, mats, rugs, etc.).  I hope this answers the question.

Thank you,

Sarah McCleskey
