Nextcloud has some good examples of face matching
https://apps.nextcloud.com/apps/facerecognition so you can filter and
copy out, though you would need to setup the source as external storage
moutned on your server. free as in opensource, but you can run it in a
container. requires 4GB RAM for the pdlib face recognition elements
though, but at least you dont have to upload everything to google.
ACDsee also have a face recognition element you might be interested in,
that is an image cataloguing app so you can more easily use it, though
it does require an indexing stage and then face recognition stage takes
a while. the photo studio is a few hundred bucks though, but the face
recogntion works well and can be fine tuned easily.
If you are looking for a simple press 1 to copy directory 1 while you
cycle through, check out www.irfanview.com  - it even has a thumbnail
view . it's free it's fast and it's quick
Would also recommend the disk image approach for later review -
especially if there are other friends or family that would like to
see/share those same images you choose to discard

>>> It's easy to throw away a drive thinking you pulled everything you cared about then have the "oh f*** I forgot this" moment, especially when you are dealing with so many memories and unique things, and especially when some of the significant things might not be obvious yet to friends and family of the deceased. Little things that can't be recreated once disposed of.

>> Nah, all good. My brain is mush so it's an important reminder. Thanks.
