Age Of Credit History
Iv got a Open, Derogatory Mark right at 6-1/2 years back, effecting my Credit Score negatively but its also proof that my History is 6+ years. So why is my Age Of Credit History showing only 10 months ?

its a matter of symantics

Your credit history goes back 7 to 10 years.  So yes, That derog will continue to show up. 

The "Age of Credit history" that you are reffering to generally means the "active" credit history with open active accounts.

Hope that clarifies things a bit.

good luck
