What kind of certificate would prove the identity of a bridesmaid ?

Here is the newspaper cutting mentioned in reply #86

What kind of certificate would prove the identity of a bridesmaid ?

My I suggest that it is not just a certificate that may be suitable, but any document providing a family history relationship in its information, and also giving a signature for Elsie, so two signatures can be compared to confirm/eliminate ...   

In NSW records ...

 :) perhaps Elsie was an informant for a death of a family member, then of course, if she married, her signature ...  or perhaps she was a bridesmaid several times over ... perhaps for other family members ...

 :) perhaps she provided statement with her signature for a probate matter, and perhaps that was proven in NSW Supreme Court, and perhaps the packet is currently held at NSW Archives

 :) perhaps a family member served in AIF, during WWI, perhaps their service record is digitised at National Archives website ... perhaps there's correspondence there with Elsie's signature on it.

May I mention that the OP has NOT been online since April 2016.
