Turkish possessives

For some reason, I can't seem to get my head around Turkish possessive endings. I'm sure they're as simple as the rest of the language, but they just aren't sticking. In the short term, I'm wondering if "çocuklarını" is correct for "her children" ("Ben çocuklarını gördüm" = "I saw her children"?).
In the longer term, is there a good website out there I can bookmark with tables of the suffixes? I have no objection to rote-learning this bit, since nothing else seems to be working for me.
