Is "your local time" set correctly under settings?

I was looking at the "Time Zone" section under settings, and I noticed that the "your local time" did not update automatically for daylight savings time.  Is this correct?

Am I correct in understanding that I have to manually update the "offset" time every time daylight savings time begins and ends?  I am in the Central Time zone.

laugh I'm 76 and have been coping with Fall Back and Spring Forward since it was instituted. I have had no difficultly in adjusting the time on various devices in all these years. Such a minor matter compared to other matters I have coped with.  Just as the federally mandated holidays and the two religious / secularized holidays give structure to the years, so does the annual ritual, twice enacted, of re-setting the time on those devices one has that still require a manual re-set.

It's not automatic.  You have to do it yourself.

Thanks for the reminder. I had to reset mine.

My computer date shows the correct time but the "Your local time" on WikiTree is an hour earlier. How can that time be corrected?

All I did was click the big green button that says “fill in from browser” and then I scrolled all the way to the bottom and clicked on the big green button that says “save settings”.
Oh! Saving changes the local time!

Thanks, Tommy
