Candidate W UMa stars from the southern hemisphere were observed in V filter using personal telescopes in South Africa during the 2008 season. Ephemeris of V839 Cen, V637 Cen and V653 Ara are presented. Software modeling packages of Binary Maker 3 and Phoebe were employed to constrain the parameters of the binary components. The results of the modeling exercise are presented.
