    Post genitive case

    I know how to use the genitive case, but I have some doubts about it. Must I use it only to say people own something? When else can I use it? I've already read things like: tomorrow's meeting or the city's population. but I'm not sure about them.

    The genitive case is not used only for ownership. The examples you've given are correct, and are examples of the genitive case.
