In brief: Possible
In a sense all cancer is "genetic" in that it occurs do to changes in dna that cause cancer formation.
However, if your questions is about familial/inherited cancer, then most uterine cancer is not from an inherited increased cancer risk. But some uterine cancer may be related to cancer risk genes such as brca 1/2 and other genes. Genetic counselors can help determine.

Sometimes colon, breast and uterine cancers in families are associated with the Lynch syndrome.

In brief: Uterine cancer
Not genetic but some familial syndromes like lynch syndrome can have uterine cancer (as part of the spectrum of cancers) as part of their presenting picture.
