In brief: No

Not all aneurysms are genetically related , however it could change as the genes for aneurysms are been identified.

In brief: Deinitely not always

6-20% of ruptured brain aneurysm patient's have a family history.
There's a big research project going on now called the familial intracranial aneurysm (fia) study, which hopes to answer some of the questions surrounding this issue.
