I did a search on my father. His birth year is incorrect. I have his baptism record. It has his correct year 1905. I tried to index it but it did not allow me to. Why???

Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
Just in passing ...
Question: WHAT; and, WHERE, are you trying to "Change", the "Birth" details of your Father ...
▬ The "Family Tree" Part, of 'FamilySearch', for an individual/person; or,
▬ The "Discovery Pages", in 'Ancestors.FamilySearch" [ .org ]; or,
▬ A "Record" in the Records in 'FamilySearch' (eg. a "Source")
▬ OR, somewhere else
'Thank You', in advance.
ps: IF, it is an individual/person, in the "Family Tree" Part, of 'FamilySearch'; THEN, what is their 'Family Search Person Identifier' (PID) - ie. the x7 Digit (Alpha/Numeric) UNIQUE identifier eg. xxxx-xxx.
Columbus H Carlin residence
US public records 1970-2009
Birth date should read 1905
Household identifier 780645329
IF, such is a "Source"; THEN, there is NO need to change.
IF, the "Source" actually applies to your Father; THEN, attach it, regardless of any "Mistakes"/"Errors".
There are often "Mistakes"/"Errors", on "Sources", that is common.
The main thing, is that the "Index", did its job, you found the "Source".
Just my thoughts ...
