I have used facial recognition software from Family Search.  It is free with varying results .I'll try the other suggestions above.  
  1. Go to FamilySearch’s Discovery page, and click Compare-a-Face. You’ll be prompted to sign in to your FamilySearch account. If you don’t have an account, you can make one here.
  2. Upload or take a photo of yourself that you want to use to compare faces.
  3. If you don’t have photos of your family uploaded, the next page will prompt you to either upload a file or take a photo to compare your face to. Or, if you have photos already uploaded to your Family Tree, you will be taken to a page that shows a list of relatives and a percentage of how similar you look to them. Click through these images to see who your family doppelgängers are

Interestingly Google Photos is a simple tool that does something of that sort. After uploading the photos, just enable people tagging https://photos.google.com/people
I had varying results, sometimes it hits phenomenally, sometimes it misses obvious matches:)

Best,

Hi, I have several photos from different sources and taken decades apart that contain individuals that may or may not match. If I could rule in or rule out a match, it would be very helpful to my research. Are there professionals with forensic expertise and credentials who do such analyses? Can anyone point me?

Thank you,
Rafael Harpaz
