I am seeking information about an award given out by the Luxembourg Government called the GRAND DUCAL ORDER OF THE CROWN OF OAK. Does this award still exist? What was the criteria for it being awarded? My great grandfather John HIRTZ was given the award on June 1, 1956 in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. He immigrated from Luxembourg in 1913, returned to Luxembourg and Paris from 1920 to 1925 and then returned to Canada until his death in 1969.
