The Messiah will prove his Davidic lineage through his fulfillment of the unique accomplishments of the Messiah (see a listing of such accomplishments in Mishneh Torah Laws of Kings 11:4). His lineage is known to the one who selected him, God. Genealogical paperwork is neither a necessary nor sufficient condition for being Messiah.
