Age of Credit History
My age of credit history is a little over 6 years. However, I am 51 years old, and there are items not showing up on my credit history such as a mortgage I had from 1994 to 1997. Does that type of information have an expiration date to where it will fall off your report?

Yes, old accounts do fall off of your credit report. Most accounts fall off your credit report 7-10 years after being closed. Your recent history is more important in calculating a current credit score.
