      Barbara,

      I think that "Skola" may well be a shortened form of Skolastika, a not very common given name either in Lithuania or in America, and one that I could easily imagine being shortened.

      Such short forms of Lithuanian given names is and has been very common. Juozapas, Joseph, is usually shortened to Juoazas; Kazimieras often changed to Kazys and Stanislovas to Stasys.
