I know in a particular committed I added a line and can see it in a private github account. In my current branch it isn't in there any more. How do I find which commit removed it?

Use git blame with the --reverse option:

$ git blame --reverse START.. file.ext

where START is a revision which still contains the line in question.

The then following commit is the one that removes the line. – cweiske Jul 2 '15 at 8:36
