aprs.fi currently holds about 2 years of track history.

Here's a 1-minute instructional demo for doing history lookups on aprs.fi. 
First, the active day browsing tool is used to pick days with activity 
within a selected year and month. Then, the calendar tool is used to 
select a longer time/date range (max 14 days):


The "Data export tool" can give you a KML/KMZ, CSV/Excel or XML file with 
the parsed positions, so that you can archive and visualize them yourself. 
I don't know if UI-View can read them, but the KML/KMZ opens up nicely in 
Google Earth.

As you noticed, you need to log in (and create an user account if you 
haven't done so before) to use the export tool.
