Facial recognition software
« on: Wednesday 08 April 09 18:05 BST (UK) »
I have one photograph which contains my grandfather. Unfortunately I don't know which is him. He is with his first wife, who was not my grandmother at his brother's wedding. I have an authenticated photo of her. Is there any facial recognition software available which would look for points of similarity between his photo and a picture of my father, or for that matter myself and state which is the most likely father. A sort of photographic DNA test. If so, does anyone do it on Rootschat please?

You could try putting your photos on here on the Photograph Restoration Board.  There are some very clever people who can look for features etc. and often overlay one photo over another.

Thanks very much Milly, well worth a try, I'll get scanning in the very near future.
