Abstract: This is a report on the detection of Hi emission from three `new' dwarf galaxies Perseus A, Perseus B, and Camelopardalis D in the IC342/Maffei group of galaxies and of Draco A. The actual number of (probable) member galaxies of this group increases to 19 galaxies. Its velocity dispersion is 86 km/s -1. With a distance of 2.2 &plusmn 0.5 Mpc this group is the nearest to the Local Group and might have considerable dynamical influence on the Local Group.
