I just noticed that the Wikitree timestamp compared to Eastern Standard Time seems to be +4. Just out of curiosity, is Wikitree hosted in Iceland?

Wikitree uses Greenwich time.

Also known as UTC. Which is slightly different from Greenwich.
Basically, it is what all computers all over the world use. What you see is nearly always a calculation, based on UTC and 'what you want to see'.
