Help on my Lithuanian ancestors

Surnames: Jurgaitis, Pashakornis, Gribauskas, Valenta
So what I can see is that Lithuanian hsitory is almost unknown in the US. I really need to find stuff on my ancestors, but their surnames were spelled so many different ways It's hard to find stuff.
I am looking for stuff on the following families:
-Stanislaw (Stanley) Jurgaitis, Yurgaitis, Jurgaiciutes. 1888-1940, born in Lithuania died in Chicago, Ill
-Juliann (Julia) Gribauskas, Gribanskos, Gribauskiule, Grybowska.1890-1945 b. in Lithuania died in Chicago, Ill
-Mattouse (Matthew) Pashakornis (Pash), Paschakanerra. 1877-1938 b. in Lithuania, d. Cedar Rapids, IA
- Magdalene (Maggie) Mary Valenta, Valenitte, Valantis 1880-1961 b. Lithuania d. Cedar Rapids, IA

from what I have found I know Maggie's father's first name is Joseph. Ibelieve him to be Joseph Valatis who married a Petronella Garbesias. Mattouse's parents are Jo and Victoria. Stanley's father is a Charles, and I believe his mother to be a Ryaine Kumbritute, I believe is father's real name is Kasimir. I think Julia's parents are George Gribauskas, and Katrina Alvikas. on a 1920 census it showed that Maggie had a brother named Charles Ambrose, who lived with her, her husband, and kids, I don't know why his last name is different than er maiden name was. I am uncertain of all listed in this paragraph.

Any help on any of these surnames or relatives would be extremely helpful.
Thank You,
