Believe me, there are no surname Kareauskas at all in Lithuania. The closest version is Karčauskas or Karčiauskas, where a letter c has an accent mark "v" on the top, which gives a sound ch (Karchauskas). Lithuanians and Poles spelled cz instead of one letter č a century ago, so spelling Karczauskas is the same as Karčauskas or Karchauskas. Often names and surnames were russificated or polonized, so spelling Baltramey Karczowski/ Karczawski was possible in official documents.
