This paper shows results obtained for three photographic Perseids captured from three stations by SOMYCE members during the 1991 Perseid Campaign in the province of Teruel (Spain). The ORBIMET software allowed to obtain the apparent and corrected radiants and the geocentric velocity of each meteor. Knowing the orbital energy of each particle, we determined the orbital elements of the three meteoroids, which according to their values of the D-criteria (Southworth and Hawkins) are very similar to those of 109P/Swift-Tuttle.
