Ellis Island Passenger Arrivals -  Search the passenger arrival records for your ancestors.  To avoid having to scroll through pages of records of people with the same name as your ancestor, it helps to have a first name and approximate year of birth.

Citing your sources correctly:

Don't lose points in the assignment by poor or sloppy citation! It's not hard to cite correctly - just follow the rules. We have MLA citation manuals in the library that you can borrow. Also, the librarians at Ephrata Area School District have published an excellent online bibliographic style manual  following  MLA format with lots of examples.  Add it to your bookmarks and use it for all your assignments!!
