Does anybody know to wich language family the Old Egypt belonged, or is this unpossible to say because you can not see the structure of the language by reading the Hyroglyphs.

I will take a wild guess and say Hamitic.  Definitely not Aryans, though.  Unless you take the Persians or the Greek dynasty established by Alexander the Great into consideration, of course.  Romans, also.

Nah, the Coptic is a direct descendent of ancient Egyptian, and they speak an Afro-Asiatic language family in the Egyptian sub-family, so they are distantly related to Hebrew and Arabic, but not Indo-European (modern name for Aryan) languages.  

PS. They are also genetically preserved amazingly, having almost the same appearance as ancient Egyptians.

Kipchak I was on a similar site. But they seemed to be  serious.

 

 

Berber, I always thought that Berber speak a Indo-European Language. But now I looked at Wikipedia, and they language belongs to the Afroasiatic familiy.

No, its Coptic, indeed, Coptic is a direct descentand of Ancient Egyptian, you can view it as the final phase in the Egyptian language's development up to the present.

Afro-Asatic is split into the following subfamilies - Berber, Semetic, Chadic, Egyptian (Coptic is here), Kush*tic, and one or two others.

Yes that's true, but koptic is not a spoken language - it's a "dead" liturgic language just like Latin, classic Greek or Hebrew (up to the 20th century when it was revived)

Mangudai you are true, but the Coptic dialect of Bohairic is nowadays tried to be revived into daily usage, and there is also a lot of Coptic literature in Sahidic (the main dialect of Coptic). So, in a way, it isn't THAT dead.
