Hi, not sure if this is still an active enquiry, but I just joined. I have been experimenting with face recognition technology to answer this sort of question and the result I get for your photos is attached. The technology is not designed to be used with old photos, but seems to do quite well.
I your case I picked the older women as the photo to compare with all the others (so she gets 100% as it is comparing her photo with herself). From previous trials I have done, I think you need at least 80% for it to be a close relative such as mother and child or sibling and well over 90% for it to be the same person. The result seems to be that the woman is very likely to be the mother of all those children, but is not likely to be the same person as the young woman in the other photo.
Therefore I would concur with the other respondee who thinks they are not sufficiently alike to be the same person.
The technology I used is Betaface, which is free to use. I have written a blog about hos to do this this on my website Timepix, but as I am new the forum prevents me posting links to either that or to Betaface.
Thank you for the interesting case, the more I use this technology the more I am convinced it can be helpful
