Each major key has a related minor key with the same sharps and flats and vice versa. The minor key beginns a small third below the the major key; thus, corresponding keys are:

MajorCC#/DbDD#/EbEFF#/GbGG#/AbAA#/BbB
MinorAmA#m/BbmBmCmC#m/DbmDD#m/EbmEmFmF#m/GbmGG#m/Abm

and vice versa:

MinorCmC#m/DbmDmD#m/EbmEmFmF#m/GbmGG#m/AbmAmA#m/BbmBm
