Of course, one should not underestimate the risk of forgery at work
here. "an entry a neighbour unearthed in December in a tattered church
registry" sounds like something that could fairly easily be forged,
and given the overall patriotic slant of the story one can easily
imagine that people are more willing to believe than doubt evidence
that the likeable lady is really 125. The "evidence" seems really to
be the registry and the fact that the Church affirms it is real.
