Finding elusive arrival record

Posted: 20 Feb 2013 8:39PM GMT
Classification: Immigration
Hi. I'm fairly new to Ancestry. I have made a lot of discoveries about my family, however there is an arrival record that has eluded me.
It is my grandfathers arrival to Philadelphia. According to my grandfather (years ago) he arrived at the port of Philadelphia on July 4 1913 (maybe 1912?). He thought that everyone was so glad that another ship of immigrants arrived that they were having a celebration in their honor (fireworks, food, making merry etc..)
I've used Ancestry's search form everyway I could think of but have come up with nothing. Does anybody know what I might be doing wrong or have any suggestions on how to proceed?
My grandfathers name was Fred (Friedrich?) Jablonski when he arrived. Immigration changed his name to Fred Apple. (birth: Sep 1895, Poland (or Russia, -- maybe Germany?)
Thanks you for any help..
