Hi J,
Thanks for joining my Lithuanian group.

Your Petrauskas name is one of the most common names in Lithuania, as I'm sure you discovered.

Kruzik seems to be a shortened form of Kružikas or Kružikauskas.

Trakimas (male form) you have spot on, but it can also be spelled Trakymas.

Szukewecute would be a Polonized spelling of the maiden female form of Šukevičius--it would properly be Šukevičiute for an unmarried girl, and Šukevičiene for a woman married to a Mr. Šukevičius. Do you know where in Lithuania this family is from?
