My family came from what is now Belarus, but was formerly tossed between Russia and Poland.  All the children from the mid-1800s on, the farthest back I have been able to go, have paternal last names.

I assume you want to know when family surnames were required.  In 1807 the Tsar issued an edict requiring family surnames.  I came across an interesting video regarding Jewish surnames on Youtube  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjWfieO49y0
