If the older version is LR5 or LR6 you will need to copy the catalog file (.lrcat) usually found in Pictures/Lightroom and then open it in Lightroom Classic. You should be prompted to convert the older catalog.

The editing is stored in the catalog. Maybe you re-imported the photos, which is wrong.

If you have copied your catalog to the Pictures folder (NamedCatalog.lrcat) us the Lightroom Classic menu:

File >> Open Catalog

Navigate to, and choose the named catalog.
