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.

I'd be interested to see the usage in question, which seems very unusual.

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.
