We review and report about the present status of our search for gamma-ray binaries, microquasars, and new kinds of gamma-ray source associated with star forming regions in the Galaxy. The search is being carried out using cross-identification techniques applied to public databases and archives. A few promising candidates have been so far identified. These include the emission line star VES 737 and the central cluster of the Monoceros R2 star forming region. The observational data supporting the proposed associations is shortly presented and discussed.
