Dear Martin, 

I think your best bet for this would be to trawl the indices for Vedic
in a Lithuanian etymological dictionary, or the indices for Lithuanian
in Mayrhofer's _Etymologisches Wörterbuch des Altindoarischen_. 

A very good and quite reliable dictionary for Old Lithuanian was
recently published a few years ago: 

Hock, Wolfgang, Elvira-Julia Bukevičiūtė, Christiane Schiller, Reiner
Fecht, Anna Helene Feulner, Eugen Hill & Dagmar S. Wodtko (eds) 2015.
_Altlitauisches etymologisches Wörterbuch. Band I: A - M. Band II: N -
Ž. Band III: Verzeichnisse und Indices._ Hamburg: Baar Verlag. 


If you can read Polish, also useful and up to date is the following
which includes the contemporary language:
Smoczyński, Wojciech. 2007. _Słownik etymologiczny języka
litewskiego_.Wilno: Uniwersytet Wileński, Wydział Filologiczny. 

In English there is also Rick Derksen's recent _Etymological Dictionary
of the Baltic Inherited Lexicon_ which follows the Leiden School of
Indo-European reconstruction:

Derksen, Rick. 2015. _Etymological Dictionary of the Baltic Inherited
Lexicon._ Leiden: Brill. 

Hope these suggestions help. 

Best wishes, 


Dr. M. J. C. Scarborough
