We present in this paper new $uvby\beta$ photometry of eight stars suspected to be $\gamma$ Doradus variables according to Handler & Kaye (2000). The new observational material has been analyzed and previously published data re-analyzed by means of an objective period search technique, based on the least-squares algorithm, called Multifre (Bossi & Nuñez 2002). We found evidence for the inclusion of seven of these stars in the list of recognized $\gamma$ Doradus variables.

Key words: stars: variables: general -- stars: oscillations -- stars: fundamental parameters -- techniques: photometric
