The known Avigdor Kara was brother-in-law of Rabbi Yehuda Loew, The great grandfather of Maharal (Sources are attached to this profile).
This profile present Avigdor Kara as brother-in-law of Yehuda Bezalel Loew (Hamaharal), Suspiciously similar to the documented people above.
The source of this profile in LoebTree, need better source.

Moshe

I am not clear what new information you are trying to give here.
As you said in your first post, there is a reference to that book as the source in the About Me of the profile http://www.geni.com/people/Yehuda-ben-Bezalel-or-ben-Yitzhak-%D7%99...

[You referred to it as "Sources are attached to this profile"].

Second, you said: "The known Avigdor Kara was brother-in-law of Rabbi Yehuda Loew, The great grandfather of Maharal" and again "Avigdor Kara was brother-in-law of Rabbi Yehuda Loew, The great grandfather of Maharal"

I am not seeing him as the brother-in-law. I am seeing him as the nephew.

Rabbi Avigdor Karo - רבי אביגדור קארו is Yehuda ben Bezalel {or ben Yitzhak} / יהודה בן בצלאל הזקן, המפורסם's nephew.

The Hebrewbooks source also says this on page 19 to which you referred us in your post:

בן א ה ו ת ו של ד׳ יה ו ד א לי ו ו א י הז ה הי ה הג א ו ן מו י א ב י ג ד ו ר קר א אב ״ ד
י דק׳׳ק

Forgive the OCR errors - the meaning is clear - and you can find it yourself at http://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=29088&pgnum=19

You may be telling us something new here - I am just not sure what - and I would be grateful for clarification.

David,

You are right, Rabbi Avigdor Karo - רבי אביגדור קארו is Yehuda ben Bezalel {or ben Yitzhak} / יהודה בן בצלאל הזקן, המפורסם's nephew.
Sorry about my inaccuracy.

Moshe - it's always good to have differences of opinion that lead to establishing the facts.

All is well that ends well.
I added a remark on the profile of Avigdor Kara (Maharal's brother in law, according to the Loebtree) that he is NOT the Avigdor Kara, Maharal Gt.Gdfather's nephew
