comment Capitalization of Sister and Brother
This is correct when they're being used as honorifics, as you say, but I think @Barmar's answer is closer to what the original question was trying to resolve.

comment A word for a book or list of people that you need to contact
No, the Rolodex (as I remember them) was contact organization only, so maybe not exactly applicable. I do remember my older co-workers at NASA using a pocket calendar to remind them who to call, but keeping the name and phone number (this was pre-email) in their Rolodex so they'd not lose track of it.

comment Polite way to suggest talking about something
A more colloquial way might be "That reminds me of a flying cat - want to hear about it?" More formally "would you like to hear about it?" "It" is the choice if you're talking about a particular flying cat - "Would you like to hear about that?" is better if it's a topic instead of an example.
