Ad Parente
A logical fallacy in which an argument is rebutted by attacking the parents of the person making the argument.
e.g. "Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of elderberries."

Guilt by association, or attack to genealogy lineage is quite comment. Here is a recent, chilling example I just ran accross:

Also, in the recent movie "The lost city of Z", someone is not invited to an exclusive meeting "because he made the wrong choice of ancestors".
