Given a family of Galois coverings of the projective line, we give a simple sufficient condition ensuring that the closure of the image of the family via the period mapping is a special (or Shimura) subvariety of Ag. By a computer program we get the list of all families in genus g≤ 9 satisfying our condition. There are no families with g=8, 9; all of them are in genus g≤ 7. These examples are related to a conjecture of Oort. Among them we get the cyclic examples constructed by various authors (Shimura, Mostow, De Jong-Noot, Rohde, Moonen, and others) and the abelian noncyclic examples found by Moonen-Oort. We get seven new nonabelian examples.
