How to transfer authors and timestamps when migrating from GIT to TFS

Hello,

We are trying to transfer our Bitbucket repository using this guide here:

http://blog.simontimms.com/2013/04/02/importing-a-git-repository-into-tfs/\\ 
The last time we did this, we lost all information on the original author and timestamp of each commit/changeset. Instead, they were given a new author and timestamp (I was the author because I was doing the transfer and the timestamp was the time and date of the transfer). We were wondering if anyone knows how to avoid this. The link above shows how to use Git-TF to do the transfer. How do we use Git-TF to transfer not only the entire commit/changeset history but the original authors and timestamps of each commit/changeset?

Thanks
