Children Use Mother's Maiden Name #general

Stanley Winthrop <ak102@...>

I have been told that there was a period in Poland arround 1880 when the
government did not recognize Jewish marriages. As a result the children of
those marriages who later emigrated were given Polish emigration documents
with their mothers maiden name as their family name. Is this true? Has
anyone discovered a situation like this with their family tree?
