You have got two problems here:

Most TZ databases are going to be LatLon specific, so, you'll have to
convert an address (City, State, Country) to geolocation
(latitude/longitude), Google and Yahoo have services for that.

Then you'll have to convert the Lat Long to a timezone, using this:

Hope that helps!
