aprs.fi currently holds about 2 years of track history.
Here's a 1-minute instructional demo for doing history lookups on aprs.fi.

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
As you noticed, you need to log in (and create an user account if you
