This appears to have worked, thank you.  I haven't looked in great detail,
but it seems to have done the right thing.

1.)  create new git-svn remote tracking branch and local tracking branch.
2.) checkout the tracking branch
3.) merge:    "git  merge  --strategy-option  theirs  my_local_git_branch
4.) fix one problem:  there was a file deleted in HEAD but modified in
     git rm the_offending.file
5.) git commit
6.) git svn dcommit
