Replacement Cards

My wallet was recently stolen and I had to get my credit cards reissued.  On my credit report the old cards are showing as closed and I have new accounts for the new cards.  The problem with this is that it doesn't carry the history of the old cards so it looks like these accounts are new instead of established with excellent payment history.  Is there any way I can combine these accounts to show their true history?
 
Thanks!

Re: Replacement Cards

On your credit report the new cards should show the same date opened as the old ones? The canceled cards should stay there for a while. If the new cards reflect a new opening date you should contact the lenders to fix that. The history may remain with the canceled cards but the FICO score will continue count their history even though they are closed. So you really only need to worry about the start date for average card age. Sorry to hear about your wallet getting stolen.
If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.
