Note: spoilers for Spectre ahead!

In Spectre, we meet Franz Oberhauser (Christoph Waltz). He later reveals he now goes by the name "Ernst Blofeld", and has a scar just like the original Blofeld. But he also states he took the name "from his mother's side".

My question is, is Oberhauser a descendent of the original Blofeld (from On Her Majesty's Secret Service among others), or is he supposed to be the same Blofeld character?

I know the Daniel Craig series of Bond films are a reboot/prequel of sorts. Is Spectre showing the "genesis" of the character?

Yes. He's supposed to be the same character. The timeline of the story arc is all over the place now but Spectre could be regarded as a prequel to the series before Daniel Craig. Some say a reboot but apparently its all supposed to be the same story. This falls apart because of Judi Denchs M, Bond's previous encounters with Spectre and Blofeld etc though.
