Keep in mind that you don't have to convert the whole IRA. You can convert part of it to a Roth. By appropriate use of beneficiaries it is possible to leave a fair bit to your children with long MRDs to their benefit. We just did this with the help of a financial planner who seemed to know all the correct moves for us. It is the "stretch IRA" concept. I checked everything in the Nolo Press Book on Getting your money out. It doesn't talk about the stretch concept although all the moves are in there, just scattered about.
Good luck.
