Farsi (Persian) term or phrase:به گفتهی
Hopefully my addition of the kasre is correct. The sentence:
به گفت به گفته " مهدی بامداد " جد اعلای این خانواده ، از یهودیان بغداد بود كه برای تجارت به ایران آمد و در اصفهان ساكن گردید و مسلمان شد. به همین جهت فروغی ها به یهودی الاصل بودن شهرت داشتند .
As often happens, I have a good idea what به گفته means, I think – something like ‘known as’.
But, given the lack of confirmation by any written source I am able to find, I prefer to consult the experts.
