I'm not quite sure what your problem is. Did you change the device or reinstall whatsapp and want to restore a backup?

In general it should work following these steps:

Follow the steps below to backup your Whats chat conversations:

- Open WhatsApp.
- Press the Menu key, and go to ‘Settings’.
- Scroll down and go to ‘More’;.
- Now tap once on “Chat History Backup” and backup will start.

That’s it! Next time when you re-install WhatsApp after a full reset, you will be asked to restore your previous backup (which is stored on your SD card).
If not, we need some more information...

However I guess it's not that useful too have all those older messages in whatsapp, because they are just filling the internal space and you can't easily access them (you would have to press "load older messages" again and again and whatsapp will become slower and slower ...).

A good possibility is to transfer the full whatsapp backup to your PC and use a tool called "Whatsapp Extractor" to display all the conversations.

Default Re: Whatsapp reader or restore old messages

WhatsApp automatically makes backups every 24 hours and stores them on the microSD memory card of your Android phone. To restore the deleted messages of WhatsApp, you will need to uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp. During the installation process, you will be prompted to restore the lost message history of WhatsApp. Choose restore your missing chats.

DONATE TO ME
Today I woke up in the morning and saw that all my whatsapp messages were deleted, I did not perform any back or restore from any backup utility such as Titanium backup. I am on Android 4.3 on Samsung note 2.
I tried to uninstall whatsapp and re-install again, it asked for restoring messages from backup folder but only restored messages till date 30-Dec-2013, although message backup was present with latest backup of yesterday’s date i.e. 23-Feb-2014.
Please let me know how can I restore all the messages and resolve this issue.
