Possessive and Genitive

Is there any difference in meaning between the terms possessive an
genitive? The former tends to be used when referring to English, the latter
to other languages, but what they refer to doesn't seem to differ much (a
case of a noun or pronoun indicating that the marked noun or pronoun is the
owner of another).
