Thanks Doug - LinuxMint forum has supplied the answer - it was in the 
repository although apt-get install didn't find it; Package Manager 
downloaded and installed it.

$ man rcs now produces its manual - understanding that is another 
problem, but your initial mail looks pretty clear.
Yours sincerely,

Theo,
I don't think you need to get too bogged down in the RCS manual! As far 
as I'm aware, once installed RCS stays in the background; you're not 
aware of it.

You should simply find that when you have a family tree loaded, if you 
click on Family Trees (the Manage Family Trees with the gramps icon)  to 
get the list of trees displayed and then click on your already loaded 
family tree, the Archive button will spring into visibility.
Click on that and you can choose some title for the archive (I usually 
write something very succinct, because the Extract stage provides more 
information). Then OK.
Gramps is busy for a short time; then it returns to the list display and 
you'll see that the original loaded tree now has a left-pointing 
triangle to its left. Click on that and you see the name of the archived 
version.
Click on the archive and the Extract button becomes visible. Click OK to 
extract. Gramps is busy for a little while.
The Extracted archive then appears on the list display as
<original name of tree>:<name of archive>.

Hope you find it useful!

Doug
