Yes, they are very distantly related through the Peverell Bloodline, this is revealed in Deathly Hallows.

Marvolo boasts about being descended from the Peverell's, which is why he has the ring. Harry then discovers that the reason he has the invisibility cloak is because he is descended from the brother who owned the cloak, Ignotus Peverell, which means Harry and Voldemort are distantly related.

However, most people don't generally consider people to be related after so many generations have passed.
