These suggestions proved successful in my case.

I had to move my library files to a backup location (and abandon the existing
.git file) before following your procedure above.

If I had wanted to keep my full history, it would have been better to start work
on the new library with a GitHub repository as you suggest. (Of course, if you
are using a free account, all work that you push will be visible, warts and all

(Some GitGuru may be able to suggest how better to do it?).
