I am sorry I am not one of your long lost sister, but I do have some information on your family name.

It is a Portuguese name, and a very illustrious one at that. There were princes of Portugal who were named so. I believe that is also a town.

The Emperor of Brazil, Pedro I, later King Pedro IV of Portugal was named Don Pedro de Alcantara.

If you find hard to find any information on your family in the States, try Portugal.

Good luck finding your sisters...

Amanda.
