Why does a previous Bankruptcy show up if you file a second time?

Why does a previous Bankruptcy show up on your credit file if you go Bankrupt a second time. I had gone bankrupt in 1981 and after my husband left me in 2002 and went bankrupt, I lost my home and he messed up my credit. I had no choice but to go bankrupt and at that time didn`t realize that my first bankruptcy would go against me until I filed bankruptcy again. Now, these won`t be cleared from my credit bureau for 14 years. Just wan`t to let people know that this happens. Also, I`m asking why this happens, when my understanding was that my 1st bankruptcy would have cleared from my record after 7 years?
