as Joost Kremer already pointed, Finnish and Hungarian belong to the "Finno-Ugric"
language family (together with some smaller languages like Samojedic); the Turk
languages belong - as well as the Mongolic - to the "Altai"-family. Both Turk and
Finno-Ugric are agglutinative languages but I ´ve never heard of a "superfamily"
Finno-Ugric/Altai (but I´m not a linguist so maybe some list member can clear this
