I'm sort of the family historian. I'm the guy with the genealogy info and the guy who scans in the old photos and slides. Because of that, I was asked to create a slideshow for my mom's 90th birthday. I selected photos of my mom from my collection and used Keynote to annotate the slideshow and control the timing. Because my mom is older than everyone at her party, I had the idea of adding my mother's age to each photo--then I added everyone else's age in the photo as well. The slideshow was well received.

My idea is that Lightroom add the ability to display the ages of the people in the photo. To do this, LR would only need the user to attach the birthdays they know to the Keywords. Permitted entries:
MM/DD/YYYY
MMM YYYY
YYYY
Any of the above preceded by the word "abt" meaning "about"
Any of the above preceded by the word "btw" meaning "between" (two date entries required).

The display could be on a side panel and simply be years or years and months. If there is no data stored for birthdate, don't display the keyword.

Maybe this is something could could be an add-in.
