Dictionary of Dutchness


The Gemeentelijke Basisadministratie Persoonsgegevens is the body which registers and manages the personal details of the Dutch population. By law everyone has to provide their details – name, date of birth, nationality – to the GBA. MGBA refers to a new programme to modernise the way GBA information is managed – that is, to make it easier for others to find out all about you.
