Further progress - found an extension that allows me to export history, up to 90 days which is the maximum chrome/chromium stores, into a json file from chromium. But, I am still searching for a way to /import/ it into chrome. Have not found an extension for that yet, nor does there seem to be a setting for importing history, only bookmarks.
