If I try and create a new Contact - I can fill out the form
but nothing appears to be created in the the addressbook.db

You have a db2 version database.  RH7 packages use db3.

These instructions will only work on RH7.x:

In your contacts directory run:
cp addressbook.db addressbook.db.bkup
db_upgrade addressbook.db

Try again.  Once you're satisfied that it's working again, you can
delete the backup at your leisure.
