How to find who logged for the past week?

I used the 'last' command to find out who logged in, but it only shows individuals from this morning. wtmp begins this morning.

How can I find all the individuals who logged on to the server from the past week?

You should be able to read from the logrotated wtmp file using last -f /the_rotated_file.
